Veterans in the Classroom

As you already know, The American Legion believes that our military veterans are living textbooks of American history.

In order to make more Americans aware that our veterans are still serving their nation by serving in the classroom, The American Legion’s Committee on Youth Education (COYE) will be promoting Veterans in the Classroom throughout the nation during the week of Nov. 12-16, National Education Association’s American Education Week.

For this promotion to happen, the COYE is reaching out to all American Legion departments in hopes that they have a Legionnaire in the classroom that they would like to recognize.

Once departments have nominated a Legionnaire, The American Legion National Headquarters will promote Veterans in the Classroom throughout its social media channels (Facebook and Twitter) from Nov. 12-16.

Please nominate one Legionnaire that your department would like to recognize no later than Nov. 1 by visiting www.legion.org/veteransclassroom/submit.

Attached is an example of what the COYE will be using on social media.

Thank you for all you do,

Tyler G. Mitchell

Assistant Director, Education and Scholarships
