Johnny Isakson and Ranking Member Sen. Jon Tester. The Commander’s Call is scheduled for 8 a.m.-noon Feb. 26 and will include Speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Master Chief Petty Officer of the Coast Guard Jason Vanderhaden.

Both events will be streamed three ways:

Details still are being worked on streaming of National Commander Brett Reistad’ s Feb. 27 testimony before a joint session of the House and Senate Committees on Veterans’ Affairs. Although the testimony may be streamed live by The American Legion, it also will be available through the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs. Check back here for updates.
