Veterans Day at the Capitol - January 17, 2018

Legionnaires and other veterans from all across Iowa will gather at the Capitol on January 17, 2018, to speak with their Senators and Representatives about the issues confronting veterans and military members in Iowa. There will be an orientation meeting at Department Headquarters at 9:00 a.m. that morning. From there, Legion family members will proceed to the Capitol for a program at 10 a.m. in the Capitol Rotunda, and visit with their legislators.

If you cannot participate at the Capitol that day, contact your Senator and Representative and send them a copy of the Iowa American Legion legislative priorities. Every Senator and every Representative need to hear from their veteran constituents.
