American Legion Department of Minnesota at Bishop Henry Whipple Federal Building.
The American Legion was in attendance during last nights VA Town Hall meeting. Sometimes veterans frustrations stem from not understanding how to navigate the VA Systems. The Legion wants to be that guidence when possible while ensuring the VA continues to improve their services to our veterans.

“He was always ready to help anybody who needed it. He was just that kind of guy," his uncle told The Daily Beast.

Below is a reminder from National on the importance of EVERY post submitting a Consolidated Post Report. An extremely easy form to fill out and EVERY post can check at least one box – that’s right, although there are blanks for number of members participating or dollars donated, there are also many items that simply require you put an “x” in a box. The last sentence says it all “It’s that important.” You can find it at National’s website: https://www.legion.org/sites/legion.org/files/legion/publications/cpr_2017.pdf If you need help filling it out, contact your district commander or adjutant. May 31 was the last day of the 2016-2017 reporting period (June 1-May 31) and we now have the rest of the month of June for your posts to submit the reports of their accomplishments for the community, state, and nation over the last 12 months. Ideally, The National Commander would like for every American Legion post to submit a report even if they only support one the American Legion programs in their community. They are just as important as the post that conducts several programs. It is a community support effort. Therefore, each and every activity of our posts, large and small, contribute to this important documentation of our values and contributions to our community, state, and nation and greatly assists in the report to Congress each year as we comply with our congressional charter of 1919. "Each department has a Headquarters post and that post can submit a CPR also. What can be included on it? Any activity the department does during the same time frame. An example would be if your department spends $.25 per paid member to support Boys State. That information and cost can be recorded on the HQ CPR. Also, if districts/counties/Vice Commanders/department officers spend money in support of Legion activities, that information should be captured on the HQ CPR. As long as it is spent in support of the community, it needs to be captured." The cutoff date for receipt at national of the paper forms submitted by the posts through your department is July 1. We ask that as the CPR s are received from each of your posts be forwarded as soon as possible so the GOC staff can get the data entered in a timely manner to meet the established timelines so departments may be recognized at Convention. National Commander Schmidt will recognize those departments with 95 percent or better CPR reporting at the National Convention on stage in Reno this year. Certificates will be mailed as well to all departments who accomplish 75 percent or better. Important: There is also the online CPR that can be submitted electronically via myLegion.org by each of your posts all the way up to July 1. We will record the data and a copy will be sent directly to your department. The online CPR remains available to your post adjutants all the way to July 1, so during the next 30 days every post that has not submitted the paper form should simply login to myLegion.org and complete the form. Any post that completes and submits the online form should NOT submit the paper form. In addition, the on-line form allows the post to submit a short written narrative of what they are doing in the community to expand on their input or cover local programs not captured on the form. Thank you all for helping to drive this. It’s that important.

St. Cloud VA Healthcare System's Cheif of Staff, Dr. Susan Markstrom is retiring this month after 25 years within the VA. Dr. Markstrom was involved with successfully overseeing the Hep C treatment initiative along with leading the expansion of mental health services at St. Cloud just to name a couple of recognizable achievements. She has been apart of both the Department and National Legion System Worth Savings Site Visits supporting recommendations to including more primary care providers to lower panel sizes. Recently the Dept. VA&R Committee submitted for a Outstanding VA Official Award from our National American Legion Office. Last week Heather Larson (Dept. VA&R Administrative Assistant) presented Dr. Markstrom with this certificate during her retirement ceremony.
