It is not trite to say that this past year has been a challenge. In my letter to you in April 2020,
announcing the cancellation of the Department Convention, I said that we would overcome this
pandemic and move forward as an organization. Legionnaires showed and continue to show
through their resilience and commitment to our founding principles that The American Legion is
prepared to continue its legacy of service to God and Country.
I look forward to seeing you in Raleigh in June.

Very Sincerely,
Department Commande
