Phishing Scam
Several members have contacted The American Legion National Headquarters
indicating they received a phone call from someone claiming to represent
The American Legion- specifically National Adjutant Dan Wheeler- requesting
the member's checking account number so they could make a donation to
The American Legion.  Anyone making such a call is operating a scam!

The American Legion National Headquarters has not and will never
call members requesting this type of information!

Legacy Run
The American Legion Legacy Run departs Florida for Indianapolis today,
August 18th, the site of this year's National Convention.  District Commander
Roger Norfolk is on the run and will be sending updates along the way.
