The latest from National Commander Bill Oxford.
Dear American Legion Family,
Congratulations to Gen. Charles Q. Brown, Jr., who was recently confirmed as the senior officer in the U.S. Air Force. As the 22nd chief of staff of the greatest air force on the planet, he leads a proud service branch during a particularly challenging time for our military. In addition to war fighting and developing future defense strategies, our military has played a crucial role in responding to the global COVID-19 pandemic. And, on top of that, senior leadership has to now ensure that all reasonable precautions are taken to protect servicemembers and their families from coronavirus exposure. Veterans know that this no easy task given the close contact required of military members in fulfilling their critical missions. Even the living arrangements now require additional considerations.
I’ve said this throughout the coronavirus emergency, we will get through this. The American Legion will continue to support, as we have for 101 years, our great U.S. military.
Bill Oxford
National Commander

June is PTSD Awareness Month.

According to the VA, there are currently about 8 million people in the United States with PTSD.

What is PTSD?

PTSD or posttraumatic stress disorder, is a mental health issue that some people develop after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event, like combat, a natural
disaster, a car accident, or sexual assault.

It’s normal to have upsetting memories, feel on edge, or have trouble sleeping after this type of event. At first, it may be hard to do normal daily activities, like go to work, go to school, or spend time with people you care about. But most people start to feel better after a few weeks or months.

If it’s been longer than a few months and you’re still having symptoms, you may have PTSD.

For some people, PTSD symptoms may start later on, or they may come and go over time.

If thoughts and feelings from a life-threatening event are upsetting you or causing problems in your life, you may have PTSD.

Here’s the good news: you can get treatment for PTSD — and it works. In this booklet, you’ll learn about types of treatment that are proven to help.
For some people, treatment can get rid of PTSD altogether. For others, it can make symptoms less intense. Treatment also gives you the tools to manage symptoms so they
don’t keep you from living your life.
PTSD treatment can turn your life around — even if you’ve been struggling for years.

Are You in Crisis? You Have Options:
- Call 911
- Go to the nearest Emergency Room

Under normal circumstances, the network would’ve transported about 20,000 to Washington this year, the group estimated. It was on track to reach the milestone of providing 250,000 trips to veterans in the 15 years since Honor Flight was founded.

Dear American Legion Family,
In honor of the U.S. Army’s 245th birthday Sunday, I offer you this quote from Gen. George S. Patton:
“The soldier is the Army. No army is better than its soldiers. The soldier is also a citizen. In fact, the highest obligation and privilege of citizenship is that of bearing arms for one's country."
Happy birthday, soldiers!

Today we commemorating Women Veterans Appreciation Day in over 13+ states to bring attention to their contributions, sacrifices and valor, as well as challenges that women in the #armedforces continue to face.

In 1948, the Women’s Armed Services Integration Act granted women permanent status in the #AirForce, #Army, #MarineCorps and #Navy. With the exception of nurses, women could not previously serve in the regular and reserve forces during peacetime. However, it is important to note that women have ALWAYS been an All-Volunteer Force (AVF) with roots dated back to the American Revolutionary War.

#Women today make up around 20 percent of new recruits, 15 percent of active duty #military and 18 percent of the #Nationalguard and #reserve forces. Women serve in every branch and hold officer positions. Of the more than 280,000 women sent to Iraq and Afghanistan, 44 percent of enlisted and 13 percent of officers have been deployed two or more times.

On June 6, 1944 the United States Army, alongside our allies, began the largest amphibious invasion in history. This day would ultimately lead to the end of World War II with the liberation of Western Europe but it was not without great cost. Thousands of American lives were lost on this fateful day 76 years ago.

National Commander of The American Legion James W. “Bill” Oxford issued the following statement today:
“The desecration of national war memorials, which honor veterans of all races, is an absolute disgrace. The heroes honored by these monuments fought for social justice and freedom for all. Moreover America’s veterans, who witnessed horrific violence in theaters around the world, should not have to see the same death and destruction here at home. The American Legion has always believed in equality for all. We also believe in the decency of the vast majority of law enforcement officers. Those who break the law, whether they are police officers or violent protesters, should be arrested and prosecuted. America, you can do better than this.”

The red poppy is a nationally recognized symbol of sacrifice worn by Americans since World War I to honor those who served and died for our country in all wars. It reminds Americans of the sacrifices made by our veterans while protecting our freedoms.
On September 27, 1920, the poppy became the official flower of The American Legion Family to memorialize the soldiers who fought and died during the war. In 1924, the distribution of poppies became a national program of The American Legion. The American Legion led the charge of having Congress designate the Friday before Memorial Day as National #PoppyDay. The day encourages all Americans to wear a red poppy to honor the fallen & support the living heroes who have worn our nation’s uniform.
Learn more about how on Poppy Day you can honor the fallen and support our veterans at https://www.legion.org/poppyday.

President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country.
On August 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an #ArmedForcesDay to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days.
The single day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under the Department of Defense.
We honor and thank all members of our armed forces, past and present, for their sacrifice, commitment and excellence.

I just wanted to stop by and inform you all, in case anyone is still there that may remember, of my dad's (Victor Rollins) passing early morning 23 January 2021. He served twice as Commander and lead the construction of the new American Legion Post 10 (I don't know the year). He really loved being a part of the legion and being friends with all the members. He spent much of his time there until my parents moved to the Northern Neck to retire. Thanks!
Thank you, Veterans!

I'd like to say thank you to anyone and everyone who made it possible for me to work at The American Legion. Ms. Kim and the bar staff have taken their individual shifts to train me and even some came in on their day off. It means something to me to be a part of this wonderful family, and serve the men and women who have served us for generations. Thank you all so very much. Love to the entire Legion, and many blessings.
