Our first guest today is National Commander of the American Legion Brett P. Reistad, he will be discussing The Nation’s Largest Veterans Organization Observing 100th Birthday and  Memorial Day 2019, Issues Facing America’s Heroes. U.S. Army veteran Brett P. Reistad (rye STAD) was elected the 100th National Commander of The American Legion during the organization’s 100th National Convention on August 30, 2018. A retired lieutenant with the Fairfax County (Va.) Police Department, Reistad was a U.S. Army infantryman from 1974 to 1978 and served with the Presidential Salute Battery of the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) at historic Fort Myer, Va. He participated in the Inaugural ceremony for President Carter and other high-profile events. A member of American Legion Post 270 in McLean, Va., he is leading the nation’s largest veteran’s organization through its centennial year. The American Legion was founded in 1919 by a group of American World War I veterans in Paris, France. “Memorial Day is solemn time to honor the ultimate sacrifices that have been made by American heroes since our nation’s founding,” Reistad said. “But really, the families of these heroes remember the loss of their loved ones every day. The American Legion calls on all Americans to offer their heartfelt support to all Gold Star families. When The American Legion was founded 100 years ago, most Americans believed that World War I was the ‘war to end all wars.’ Sadly, it wasn’t. But from that war came an organization that was built on the four pillars of a strong national defense, care for veterans, patriotic youth programs and Americanism. That organization is The American Legion and we are still dedicated to serving this great nation.” For more information go to: www.legion.org
