Phillip Baker, Commander of American Legion Post 281 in Piedmont and Southern Missouri District 13 Commander, has been appointed to the Legion’s Media and Communications Council. 

His appointment was confirmed by the Legion’s National Executive Committee at its meeting in Indianapolis on 

Oct. 16-17. Daniel M. Dellinger, National Commander, notified Baker of the appointment and thanked him for his dedication and willingness to serve during the 2013-2014 term.

The Media and Communications Commission educates, motivates and informs The American Legion family on the mission and programs of The American Legion for the purpose of making Legionnaires promoters of and participants in the activities and aims of the Legion. To the audience outside the Legion Family, the commission builds awareness of and support for the primary mission and purpose of The American Legion, especially among individual citizens, the U.S. Congress, national and local government agencies, and corporate America. 

In his new role, Baker will also serve as Legion liaison to Congressman Jason Smith. Baker also serves on the Veterans Advisory Council for Congressman Smith to advise him on issues important to veterans living in Missouri’s 8th District.

Baker would like to remind everyone of the Legion’s commitment to providing a voice to veterans in state and national affairs. In fact, Baker pointed out that during the federal government’s 16-day shutdown in October, The American Legion held two press conferences, one in Washington and one in Indianapolis (and participated in a third), that condemned Congress and the White House for their lack of resolve, and warned of the shutdown’s dire effects on veterans and their families. Without taking sides, veterans called for an end to the shutdown and worked to stop the shutdown from doing further harm to U.S. troops and veterans.
