Congressman Kim Honors American Legion on 100th Anniversary
WASHINGTON, DC – The following is a statement from Congressman Andy Kim (NJ-03) honoring the American Legion on its 100th anniversary.
“The American Legion represents the best of America. It is a cornerstone of our communities because its members have fought to make the freedom and prosperity that define our communities possible. I am proud to have thousands of American Legion members as my neighbors in New Jersey and to celebrate this monumental anniversary with them.”
New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District is home to more than 53,000 veterans according to the Veterans Administration. Congressman Kim is a co-sponsor of H.R. 1641, the LEGION Act, which amends the American Legion’s Congressional charter to determine its own veteran membership eligibility.
