EXPECTATIONS FOR RENDERING PROPER RESPECT

With adoption of Res. No. 16 of the National Executive Committee Fall 2016 titled “Expectations for Rendering Proper Respect When Participating in Programs of The American Legion” The American Legion expects participants of all its programs to show proper respect to the Flag of the United States, at all times, including during the National Anthem. It is recommended to departments and posts that the chairman or director of any American Legion program make clear to all participants in advance of the program that The American Legion has the expectation for rendering proper respect to the Flag of the United States, at all times, including during the National Anthem. If any participant of any program of The American Legion feel they cannot or will not live up to this expectation, the individual should not be a participant in American Legion programs. If any participant of any national-level program of The American Legion cannot or will not live up to this expectation, the individual will be removed from the program and not be allowed any further participation.
