It is with great honor that Christie-DeParcq American Legion Post 406 in St. Paul nominates Joe Jansen for the position of vice commander for the 4th and 5th districts of the Department of Minnesota for the 2024-2025 term.

Joe Jansen

Jansen’s dedication and service to The American Legion at all levels make him an exceptional candidate for this important role. At the post level, Jansen has served with distinction as commander, vice commander and on numerous committees over many years. His leadership and commitment have been invaluable assets to Post 406.

Jansen’s contributions extend well beyond his post. At the 4th District level, he has taken on critical responsibilities such as district commander, vice commander, chaplain and serving on several district committees. His experience and knowledge gained from these roles will undoubtedly benefit districts 4 and 5.

Furthermore, Jansen has represented the Department of Minnesota for many years as the liaison for the Armed Forces Service Center at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. His veteran advocacy and support for our active-duty military personnel are truly commendable.

He is an Army veteran of the Vietnam era and has 29 years of continuous American Legion membership.
Jansen’s proven track record of leadership, dedicated service and passion for The American Legion’s mission and values make him an ideal candidate for vice commander. We wholeheartedly endorse Jansen for this position and are confident in his ability to serve the 4th and 5th districts with integrity and commitment.
