Legion advocates for veterans on C-SPAN

Peter Gaytan, executive director of The American Legion's Washington's office, appeared on the March 29 broadcast of C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal.” He discussed several veterans issues with show host John McCardle, and answered several call-in questions from viewers.

Gaytan discussed how The American Legion, with more than two million members and nearly 3,000 accredited service officer representatives, reach out to America’s veterans and help them get benefits they have earned through their service. He said the Legion is continuously working with the Department of Veterans Affairs to improve the delivery of care and benefits to veterans.
