"For God and Country" - "Lest We Forget"
National American Legion College - October 29 - November 3, 2017
Eligible candidates for National American Legion College are Legionnaires with military service from 1982 or later*. Candidates must also complete The American Legion Extension Institute prior to submitting their application.
*Beginning with the 2007 class, if a Department sends a fully qualified attendee, they may send a pre 1982 war era Veteran as their second attendee to the College.
Application deadline is July 1. Applications will be reviewed by the Department Leadership Committee and two candidates will be selected for submission. A panel made up of National Vice Commanders will review the applications and select the 50 best-qualified attendees. Once students are selected, the Internal Affairs staff will contact them directly regarding transportation and all materials they will need weeks before the class begins.
The Department of Iowa will pay the registration fee for two students selected to attend.
Cost of airfare will be paid by The American Legion. All travel arrangements must be made through the national travel office. If travel is by automobile, reimbursement shall be at the current IRS authorized mileage rate round trip from point of departure to destination, not to exceed least expensive airfare from nearest airport.
Hotel accommodations will be paid by The American Legion. All students will be housed at the Sheraton Hotel located in downtown Indianapolis. Students will be paired with a roommate unless they elect to pay for a private room.
Students will be responsible for out-of-pocket incidentals and garage parking at the Sheraton.
