The head of the nation’s largest veterans service organization extended condolences over today’s passing of Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md.
“We are saddened to learn of the passing of this distinguished leader in Congress,” said American Legion National Commander James W. “Bill” Oxford. “He was a lifelong passionate champion of civil rights. He strived every day to make his country a better place, and his voice will continue to resonate in congressional halls for decades to come. He will be missed by many.”
