2014/2015 NATIONAL COMMANDER MICHAEL D. HELM

Michael D. Helm was elected national commander of the 2.4 million-member American Legion on Aug. 28, 2014 in Charlotte, N.C., during the 96th national convention of the nation’s largest veterans organization.

        A U.S. Army veteran during the Vietnam War, he served with the 82nd Airborne Division in Fort Bragg, N.C., and earned his Ranger tab in 1972. He has been a member of Jack Helt American Legion Post 313 at Lebanon, Neb., since 1972.  Born in McCook, Neb., he grew up in Norcatur, Kansas, where he currently resides. He is a retired U.S. Postal Service rural mail carrier with more than 33 years of service.
        Helm served as commander of the Department of Nebraska from 1987 to 1988 and as a national vice commander from 2003 to 2004. He also served as the national commander’s representative to the National Legislative Commission, the chairman of the National Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation Commission and the chairman of the Foreign Relations Commission.
        He was Nebraska’s first Vietnam era veteran elected as department commander. Mike takes great pride in having been selected to serve as Nebraska’s official American Legion representative at the dedication of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in 1982.
        Mike's wife Debbie is active in The American Legion Auxiliary having served as District 9 president and as the Department Junior Activities Chairwoman. They are the parents of five young Legion family members.

What The American Legion Does:

In a Nutshell:   If  you're a Veteran, The American Legion will help you. It will help you with VA health care, GI Bill benefits, sudden emergencies and the needs of your children.  And The American Legion does it all for free, because we have an army of volunteers - each one a wartime veteran.  So we understand. That's why we're here now - helping veterans, servicemembers and their families.

To find out much more about what The American Legion does, please visit www.legion.org 

  • Processes more than 600 disability claims appeals per month for veterans trying to get their VA medical benefits.
  • Gives emergency financial assistance to Legion Families hit by Hurricanes, floods, tornadoes and other disasters.
  • Urges Congress to provide enough VA funding to take care of veterans' medical needs - and provide it in advance.
  • Awards college scholarships to children whose mothers or fathers have sacrificed their lives in the global war on terrorism.
  • Volunteers about one million hours every year at about 160 VA Medical Facilities nationwide.
  • Helps familes of deployed troops through the Family Support Network and Operation Military Family Outreach.

  • Donates about 100,000 pints of blood annually to the American Red Cross.
  • Lobbies  Congress to upgrade and improve Post-9/11 GI Bill education benefits (Legion wrote the original 1944 GI Bill that educated 8 million veterans).
  • Through its Heroes To Hometowns program works with communities to welcome back their returning veterans and help them make the transition to civilian life.
  • Sponsors more than 5,000 American Legion Baseball Teams, which are made up by more than 100,000 ballplayers.
  • Raises funds to improve quality of life for active duty troops with the Wounded Warrior Recognition Program and Operation Comfort Warriors.
