Our Pillars, Your Platform

A resource guide for Legion Family members, outlining "our positions in relation to the 4 Pillars" of the American Legion, is now available on, announced National Legislative Chair Kenneth Governor, who is also New York Department PR chair.

Called "Our Pillars, Your Platform," "the guide is a valuable tool for voters, candidates and anyone who wants to know where we stand on the important issues of the day," he said.

"You are invited to read the guide and share it with others. When our posts conduct voter registration drives, candidate forums or other related non-partisan events, ask candidates for election where they stand in relation to the issues advanced by our renowned American Legion."

It's given to each member of Congress and congressional candidates, plus, with the Democratic and Republican National Conventions occurring every four years, "The American Legion takes the opportunity to advise the respective Platform Committees on what our great organization believes is important to our country and which, consequently, should be included in their platforms," noted Governor.
