In an effort for the Department to properly administer the flow of information over Facebook, it has become necessary for certain changes to be made.
All Area and District “groups” will also be administered by the Department Webmaster under a single login.
Individuals who administer the Department Page will now be assigned the role of “Editor”. To Facebook, the function you use most will still be obtained through this role. The term Administrator in its compacity does not need to be given outside of one single account. The ownership of our Facebook Page and Groups is now secured to the Department of Arizona. There is now a much lower risk of our pages to be tampered by a hacker/hijacker.
By navigating to the Department “Page” a user can now find all “Groups” under the Group tab. There are now groups linked to the Department Page for all Area’s and District’s in our Department.
Once the respective individuals navigate to and join these groups the roles will be assigned by the webmaster. Should you need to request access to a group, the request should be passed through the Area Vice Commander/Adjutant or District Commander/Adjutant as appropriate.
The groups are located here:
The American Legion Department of Arizona-Area “A”
The American Legion Department of Arizona-Area “B”
The American Legion Department of Arizona-Area “C”

Utilizing this method, the Department will be able to share information from the Department Page down to each of these levels. This will formalize and increase the flow of information while creating uniformity within the Department.
The account labeled “Franklin D’Olier” is the name of the first National Commander of the American Legion.
