E-mail Print PDF

Legion Family members unable to attend this year’s Washington Conference still will have the opportunity to watch live two of the conference’s biggest events.

Both the "Know Before You Go” briefing and the Commander’s Call will be live-streamed from Washington, D.C. The "Know Before You Go” legislative briefing prepares Legion Family members for their Feb. 27 visit to Capitol Hill to meet with their congressional representatives.

This year’s Commander’s Call is expected to feature members of the House and Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committees, Department of Veterans Affairs officials, the presentation of the Legion’s Distinguished Service Medal and remarks from National Commander Denise Rohan.

A veteran’s family must request a United States flag.

A flag is provided at no cost to drape the casket or accompany the urn of a deceased veteran. Generally, the flag is given to the next of kin. Only one flag may be provided per veteran. Upon the request of the family, an “Application for United States Flag for Burial Purposes” (VA Form 21-2008) must be submitted along with a copy of the veteran’s discharge papers. Flags may be obtained from VA regional offices and most U.S. Post Offices.
