The Commander-in-Chief set out the criteria to be selected as an All-American Post, District, or Department. Today we are proud to formally announce that 22 Department, 186 District and 996 Post Commanders who have met that criteria and are selected as the All-American class of 2020 - 2021.
Below you will find the full list of All-American Commanders at Department, District and Post level for South Carolina. Those who are selected as All-American Commanders (Departments, Top 25 Posts and Top 10 Districts in their respective divisions), an email will be sent to those commanders that have not previously responded to an email that requested their cap size to ensure we have the correct type and size for their All American Cap order.
Please ensure those that have not responded previously are on the lookout over the next 48 hours for this message to be in their email "Inbox” that will allow them to click on a link and submit their cap size – This will be a huge help to us as we prepare for Convention at the end of the month.
Those of you who will be attending the National Convention in Kansas City will need to register upon arrival and then proceed to the Membership Booth to check in and receive your All-American packet containing:
- All-American cap
- Commander’s citation
- Name badge
- Name card
Remember that All-American caps are not to be worn until the awards ceremony on Monday. On Monday, they’ll need to bring their cap, badge, and name card with them to the hall and be seated in specific order to walk across the stage, getting their photo taken with the Commander-in-Chief, and receive their All-American Commander Pin.
For those who will not be attending Convention, their packet and pin will be sent to their respective Department for distribution. We will also be sending out Post Home citations to the Departments for distribution after the Convention.
Once again, thank you for all the hard work and dedication this past year!
