Hello District Commanders,

Hope you are all well and hope you all stay that way.
The latest Consolidated Post Report (CPR) from national shows that our department
is still at only 12%. I know we can do better. 
PLEASE contact your post commanders and ask them to get their CPR's sent in as soon as possible.
I would appreciate it and I know our commander will appreciate it also.
Don't hesitate to call on me for any assistance.

God bless and take care.
Mary Erdman, NEC

Legislation to end means testing for WWII Veterans

The American Legion Legislative Division out of the Washington DC Office is working on legislation to end means testing for WWII Veterans and your Senators have expressed interest in introducing a bill that would accomplish that.
They have asked for us to get anecdotal evidence of WWII Veterans who have been denied or been dropped from the VA system in their home states. We would like to request that you reach out to the legionnaires in your respective states to see if any of your legionnaires have experienced this problem and would like to share their stories.
A link is provided < HERE > to the letter The American Legion sent to VA Secretary Wilkie, The American Legion Resolution stating our stance, and a one pager on what we are trying to do to solve this problem.

Contact Department Adjutant Bob Renner at The American Legion Department of Arkansas Headquarters at 
1-877-243-9799 or 1-501-375-1104 with information, or for more information.
