American Legion on Bonuses: 'We stand with the soldiers of the Guard'

American Legion on Bonuses: 'We stand with the soldiers of the Guard' INDIANAPOLIS (October 24, 2016) –The head of the nation's largest veterans service organization is calling on the U.S. military to immediately cease collection efforts from National Guard members who were mistakenly awarded bonuses through no fault of their own. "As far as The American Legion is concerned, the debt is backwards. America owes a debt to these heroes that we can never re-pay," said National Commander Charles E. Schmidt. "It is outrageous that thousands of National Guard members in California and many other states were promised bonuses if they would re-enlist and go to war. Most did and now they are being hounded to re-pay the money because of bureaucratic incompetence. This is not how you treat our volunteers, who had no more obligation to serve than any other American.  How can any potential military member ever believe what military recruiters promise them in the future? Co…

Editorial by National Commander Charles E. Schmidt: Country Over Candidates

Note: The following op-ed by National Commander Charles E. Schmidt was published by the Waco Tribune on October 21. Editor – The following guest editorial by the national commander of The American Legion is offered for your consideration. Country Over Candidates By Charles E. Schmidt As leader of the nation's largest veterans service organization, I am frequently asked who The American Legion is supporting in this year's presidential election.  My answer is simple. "Veterans." And by that answer I am not referring to a candidate's military service (or lack thereof) but to his or her proposals on issues such as VA health care, a strong national defense and border security. Sometimes, if the questioner is unaware of our nonpartisanship, a follow-up is asked along the lines of "who does the Legion really support, Trump or Hillary?"  My answer is the same, "The American Legion supports veterans." While a lot of organizations claim nonpartisanship, it…

American Legion applauds Sen. McCain for protecting veterans’ preference

Legion applauds McCain for protecting veterans' preference
WASHINGTON, Oct. 4, 2016 — One of The American Legion's top priorities is creating and protecting the benefits veterans use every day, including veterans' preference for employment, which the 2017 Senate-passed National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is threatening. In the Senate version of the NDAA, the bill that funds the nation's military and defense budget, is a provision that would limit veterans' preference in hiring to a one-time use. Disappointed in the decision, The Legion sent a letter to all members of Congress voicing its opposition to a provision that seeks to undermine the institution of veterans' preference in federal hiring. The American Legion received a letter from Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., Chairman of the Armed Services Committee, responding to the organization's concerns. McCain stated in his letter, "Given your [The American Legion] and others' concerns, I will ensu…
