American Legion National Commander to Visit Pulaski

PULASKI – American Legion National Commander Daniel M. Dellinger will visit Oswego County April 9, bringing a message of the Legion’s core mission to serve men and women in uniform, veterans, local communities and the nation.

The Vietnam War-era army veteran will speak around 8 p.m. to the Central New York Legion Family during a dinner at Robert Edwards American Legion Post 358, 3350 Maple Ave., Pulaski.

Members of the American Legion, the American Legion Auxiliary and the Sons of the American Legion will be in attendance.

The leader of the 2.4-million-member wartime veterans organization will give an update on the Legion’s role as a strong voice in the nation’s capital, fighting for service member and veteran benefits, and opposing proposed budget cuts that weaken national defense, said New York State American Legion Commander Kenneth Governor.

He said Dellinger would also discuss continuing efforts to make the Department of Veterans Affairs accountable to the nation’s military veterans and to reduce the backlog of benefit claims.

In fact, earlier in the day, before flying into Syracuse and making his way to Pulaski, Dellinger was invited to testify at a Congressional hearing in Washington, DC, focusing on delays in VA medical care and preventable veterans deaths.
