Give a boost to Tango Alpha Lima

Now in its fifth year, The American Legion Tango Alpha Lima podcast has published more than 240 episodes, won three major awards and increased downloads by 72% year over year.

However, that is only the beginning.

“We’re proud of the growth of the podcast,” Media & Communications Commission Chairman Dave Wallace said. “It’s been a great way to connect with more potential members, especially younger veterans. The podcast has also helped our ability to have meaningful conversations about important topics like veteran suicide, military sexual trauma and others.”

Still, more can be done to increase the reach and audience, Wallace said. He recommended to follow, rate and review Tango Alpha Lima, which helps connect the podcast to those interested in military and veteran topics.

Here’s how:

Make sure you have the Podcasts app on your iPhone. If you don’t already have the Podcast app on your phone, first go to the App Store on your iPhone, browse to the Podcasts app (link in Resources) and tap the “Free” button to install it.

Search for and follow Tango Alpha Lima. Tap the logo and then hit the “Follow” button. The podcast will then appear in your library. You can choose to automatically download each episode, or manually download them. When the download is complete, the most recent episode appears in your folder named Downloaded. Tap the title to listen to it. You can also click on “See All Episodes” to download and listen to earlier episodes.

Rate and review the podcast. Scroll down to the “Ratings & Reviews” section. Click 5 stars under “Tap to Rate.” You can also scroll down a bit more and click on “Write a Review,” which does not have to be long. A sentence or two about the podcast is sufficient.

Each Tuesday, a new Tango Alpha Lima episode will be published. And on the first of every month, a new Be the One podcast will be available. To learn more, visit
