Department Commanders; Department Adjutants;
The Office of the Secretary of Defense has reached out to The American Legion and other organizations in order to get an idea of how many D-Day veterans will be travelling next month to France to participate in the 70th Anniversary Commemoration.
Pentagon Officials are trying to coordinate in-country travel, as well as inform Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel of possible meeting arrangements during this time.
The American Legion National Headquarters, Washington, D.C. Office needs the following information:
– Names of any D-Day vets who will travelling to France for the commemoration.
– The unit they served with.
– Where they will be staying while in France (i.e. Paris).
– Dates of their visit.
We thank you for your assistance and look forward to your response.
