New Career Platform

Legion launches new career platform

INDIANAPOLIS (Nov. 21, 2014) -- The American Legion and its allies in veteran employment and entrepreneurship have launched a new web platform to help those who served in uniform translate military skills to job skills, find employment, start businesses and make successful transitions.

Among the key features of The American Legion’s Veteran Employment Center are:

  • A Veteran Job Search tool, powered by Military.com, which helps veterans find current job listings near them. By entering a ZIP Code, veterans can easily find job listings that fit their skill sets within a chosen distance from home.
  • A series of 10 custom-produced videos to help veterans start and succeed in business. The series, “Veteran Video Guide: Starting and Growing a Business,” is sponsored by ADP and provides guidance from successful veteran entrepreneurs, including members of the Legion’s Business Task Force.
  • A listing of American Legion-sponsored or produced veteran career fairs nationwide, with links to registration sites.
  • Links to important forms, sites and agency platforms that help veterans in the career search, including USAJobs.gov, the federal government’s job-listing site, Department of Labor online tools to understand and calculate Veterans Preference points, and a VA Military Skills Translator.

Action Alert: Contact Congress Now!

Protect Military and Student Veterans' Benefits

 

Take Action!

Contact Congress Now!

 

(November 21, 2014)  Last June, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 4345, the Howard P. “Buck” McKeon National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year (FY) 2015.  The bill rejected the Administration’s request to significantly reduce military compensation, including reducing the troops’ pay raise, increasing TRICARE pharmacy co-pays and reducing the basic housing allowance (BAH) for military personnel.  However, the Senate version of the bill, S. 2410, adopts the proposals to cut military compensation and benefits. 
   
In addition, if Congress chooses to accept the proposal to reduce BAH benefits, the cuts will not only harm tens of thousands of military families, but will also negatively impact student veterans.  The living stipend provided by the G.I. Bill is tied to the military’s BAH; therefore, student veterans will also see a reduction in their benefits if Congress accepts the Pentagon’s proposal.

According to congressional sources tracking the bill, negotiations on the final bill have stalled amid disagreements between House and Senate Armed Services committee leaders over these issues affecting military benefits.

We need your help to ensure Congress knows we want service members’ and veterans’ pay and benefits protected as they negotiate a final version of the defense bill.  All Legionnaires, concerned citizens, veterans and their families are asked to contact their congressional representatives to ask them to sustain a 1.8 percent active duty pay raise, reject cuts to the Basic Allowance for Housing, and reject proposed TRICARE pharmacy co-pay increases.

Junior Air Rifle National Championship

juniorss

The American Legion National Headquarters is proud to announce that its Annual 3-Position Junior Air Rifle National Championship will begin with a Postal Match on November 1, 2014!

What is a Postal Match?

“A Postal Match is a match in which competitor’s fire on their home ranges using targets which have been mailed to them by the American Legion National Headquarters. The fired targets are then mailed back to the American Legion National Headquarters for scoring and ranking and awards”.

State and/or regional champions are determined and advance to a qualification round (also a postal match) to determine the athletes who will earn an expense-paid trip to compete in the national championship.

The American Legion’s Junior 3-Position Air Rifle Tournament provides American Legion Affiliated competitors an opportunity to test their marksmanship ability in competition with other junior competitors throughout the nation.

                The Individual Tournament has three phases of competition: 1) Preliminary Round - State/Regional Championships; 2) Qualification Round; and 3) National Championships (Colorado Springs, CO).

The Preliminary Round - State/Regional and Qualification Round of the Individual Tournament are postal matches whereas the National Championship of the Individual Tournament is a shoulder-to-shoulder competition.

The Team Tournament has two phases of competition: 1) Preliminary Round - State/Regional Championships and 2) National Championships.  The preliminary round team tournament is a “paper” match and will be comprised of the top four athletes’ individual tournament scores.  A club with at least four individuals enters one team; at least eight individuals enters two teams; and so on.

                The Preliminary Round - State/Regional and National Championship phases of the Team Tournament are postal matches.

                Both the Individual and Team Tournaments will be conducted in accordance with the Official Match Program (OMP) and the National Standard Three-Position Air Rifle Rules (current edition).
