The American Legion Foreign Relations Commission meets periodically throughout the year to hear speakers, exchange information and develop the Legion’s Foreign Relations policies. Currently, the Legion supports and advocates a U.S. foreign policy of “democratic activism,” which we define as:
- promoting democratic values
- maintaining adequate military strength to deter and defeat aggression
- cooperating with allies
- encouraging free and fair trade
- assisting developing nations
The American Legion also advocates for the complete recovery of U.S. POW/MIA.
