Message from the Membership Director
Steven ‘Mike’ Hooper

Hello Membership Team

This is from Marty Callaghan, American Legion's D.C. office
 E-mail:  Phone 202-263-5758 Cell 202-341-8900 
     November 11 is just over the horizon and America’s media will soon be writing their Veterans Day stories.  The Washington Times has already asked us about new and/or younger members and what the Legion is doing to recruit them; we expect the same question from other media.
USSA stands ready to serve you.     At the D.C. office, we are aware of Post 24 in Alexandria, Va., with about 900 members (600 are Iraq/A’stan veterans).  Can you please let us know of any posts in your department that are largely made up of Iraq/A’stan-era veterans? For example, we know about a Legion post at North Dakota State University that was started by student veterans.
     So if you have any Legion posts on college/university campuses, or any virtual/ePosts on-line, please let us know. Also, we want to hear about any post with outstanding programs that help veterans and/or their families, i.e., residences for homeless veterans, employment networking, helping student veterans, etc.
     We’ll be pitching positive Legion stories to the media all next week; any helpful information you can give us will be most appreciated.

    Best Regards... Mike Hooper
