The American Legion Auxiliary Department of Ohio in no way condones the events that occurred at the Memorial Day ceremony of Hudson Post 464. We are deeply saddened by what occurred and categorically denounce discrimination in all its forms. We value diversity and strive to provide an environment where all are welcome and can have their voices heard.

The Department Executive Committee has requested the resignation of Hudson Auxiliary President Cindy Suchan for her actions in this incident as they were inconsistent with the values and principles of the American Legion Auxiliary.

The Department of Ohio American Legion Auxiliary stands with the comments made by the National American Legion Family regarding the incident that occurred at the Memorial Day Services that were conducted by the Hudson American Legion Post.

American Legion Auxiliary National Headquarters

The American Legion Auxiliary and our National President Nicole Clapp are in full support of this statement from National Commander James W. "Bill" Oxford regarding the Ohio Memorial Day ceremony.

“The Ohio American Legion assures us that they are fully investigating this incident. Regardless of the investigation’s outcome, the national headquarters is very clear that The American Legion deplores racism and reveres the Constitution. We salute LTC Kemter’s service and his moving remarks about the history of Memorial Day and the important role played by Black Americans in honoring our fallen heroes. We regret any actions taken that detracts from this important message.”

-National Commander James W. “Bill” Oxford
