Vice President Mike Pence will address delegates at the 101st National Convention of The American Legion in Indianapolis.
Pence, who was governor of Indiana before becoming vice president, will speak to American Legion Family members at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 28, in Halls A&B of the Indiana Convention Center.
During last year’s 100th national convention in Minneapolis, Pence delivered a 25-minute speech to Legionnaires. He covered a variety of veterans issues including health care, benefits and national security.
Pence, the son of a Bronze Star recipient from the Korean War and the father of a U.S. Marine, has a long association with The American Legion. In 1977, he won The American Legion Department of Indiana’s Oratorical Contest.
