The Dr. Pat Show: Talk Radio to Thrive By!: “Be the One” to Stop Veteran SuicideNation’s Largest Veterans Organization Asks All Americans  to Share Legion’s Mission to “Be the One” to Stop Veteran Suicide

The American Legion National Commander Discusses Suicide Prevention Mission Ahead of Memorial Day. Special guest Daniel J. Seehafer, American Legion National Commander.


The American Legion is also focused on:

  • Ensuring military members are provided the resources needed for a smooth transition to civilian society after they leave the Armed Forces.
  • Eliminating the disabled veterans tax, also known as “concurrent receipt,” which requires some veterans to fund their disability compensation out of their own military retirement pensions.
  • Smooth implementation of the PACT Act, which opened eligibility for VA health care and benefits to veterans suffering from conditions linked to burn pits and other toxic hazards.
  • Encouraging all veterans to practice “Buddy Checks” and connect those in need with trained professionals. Buddy checks are an important component of The American Legion “Be the One” mission.
  • Parity for National Guard members and reservists when it comes to receiving GI Bill benefits. The American Legion believes one day of service should equal one day of service, regardless of who issued the operational orders. Current policy favors federal or active-duty orders over some Guard and Reserve duty.
  • Improving military quality of life by modernizing barracks, and expanding access to daycare, family employment, educational opportunities and quality health care.
  • Congressional passage of legislation that would ensure that the U.S. Coast Guard never again experiences pay interruptions in the event of a government shutdown.
  • Passage of a constitutional amendment to allow Congress to protect the U.S. Flag from desecration.
