Department of Virginia
2021 – 2022 

A Great Leader will always want those who follow them to be better. A Great Leader will always inspire and motivate others.

Our goal is to follow our Mission Statement, to support The American Legion and to always support our Veterans, Active Duty and their families. To achieve this goal, we will:

  • Promote and encourage participation in the ALA Academy
  • Increase knowledge of TALA history, programs and organization
  • Promote the use of all materials available through the National and Department websites; such as Unit Guide book, all levels of the Constitution and By-Laws, Operations Guide and any new materials that will become available
  • Increase the use of mentors on the Unit, District and Department levels
  • Promote a culture of goodwill at all levels
  • Increase communication within all levels of the organization

    In order to achieve our goals this year, we will find it necessary to be open to flexibility. With each change in leadership, there will be new ideas and many new opportunities to grow our membership, organization and more ways to enhance the lives of our Veterans, active duty and to be successful in our Mission.
