Denise Rohan was elected national commander of the 2 million-member American Legion on August 24, 2017 in Reno, Nev., during the 99th national convention of the nation’s largest veterans organization. She is the first woman to be elected to the top position of The American Legion.

Born in McGregor, Iowa, Denise (Hulbert) she lived in Elkader, Iowa, until leaving for U.S. Army basic training at Fort McClellan, Ala. in 1974. She served on active-duty as a stock control & accounting specialist and repair parts specialist course instructor at Fort Lee, Va., until her honorable discharge in August 1976. She has served the American Legion since 1984. While commander of Post 333 in Sun Prairie, Wis., she established Sons of the American Legion Squadron 333 and chartered Boy Scout Troop 333.

She was employed by the University of Wisconsin Madison as the assistant bursar of student loans until her retirement in 2012. She also served the Family Readiness Group as a civilian volunteer with the Wisconsin Army and Air National Guard.


Her theme as national commander was “Family First” and her fundraising project provided temporary financial assistance to needy children of veterans and training for American Legion service officers.

We hope you can make it in helping us to honor these amazing Utah Women Veteran.
