National Commander of the American Legion speaks in Waveland
Veterans came out to the American Legion Post 77 in Waveland to hear National Commander Denise Rohan speak this morning.
Rohan will leave a legacy within the American Legion. She is the first female National Commander in the organization’s one hundred year history. A native of Iowa, she was elected National Commander last August during the legion’s national convention.
Now, she is traveling the country stopping into various legion posts speaking about the four pillars of the American Legion. “And the four pillars are all about veteran’s affairs and rehabilitation, taking care of our veterans, national security taking care of our military, but those other two pillars are children and youth and Americanism and all together, when I look at all we do it is all about taking care of one another. My theme this year is family first and with that family first theme it’s all about taking care of that American Legion family. That’s what we do and that’s who we are,” said Rohan.
Next week, Rohan will head to Washington, D.C. to speak to congressional leaders.
