The American Legion Mourns Passing of Orrin Hatch

INDIANAPOLIS, April 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- American Legion National Commander Paul E. Dillard issued the following statement today concerning the passing of former Sen. Orrin Hatch:

"The American Legion is saddened about the passing of Sen. Hatch. He was a true champion for veterans and an ardent supporter of a constitutional amendment to protect our American flag. His willingness to put patriotism ahead of partisan politics earned him friends across the political aisle. In 2000, The American Legion proudly presented him with our organization's Distinguished Service Medal, our highest honor. His voice is already missed."

As a presidential candidate during the primaries of 2000, the longtime Utah senator expressed dismay at those who disrespected the American flag. "I really believe that if we don't protect the values that we have, if we can't stand up for the flag of the United States, our national symbol, what can we stand up for?" Hatch told The American Legion Magazine.
