James Fox

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. announces James Fox has achieved All-American status as a District Commander.

Fox is commander of North Carolina VFW District 12, consisting of posts in Rowan, Cabarrus, and Stanly Counties. Commander Fox is one of only 99 VFW District commanders worldwide to earn the title of All-American Commander.

In addition, Fox achieved All-American status as a Post Commander.

Fox, commander of Post 3006 in Salisbury, is one of only 198 VFW Post commanders worldwide to earn the title of All-American Commander.

To achieve each of these honors, Post commanders must meet strict requirements in their role to include exceptional leadership, authentic accomplishment in membership growth and strong support of VFW core programs.

“The All-American Commanders are a fine example of VFW leadership. Their hard work and dedication to the mission and values of our organization has rightly earned them this great honor,” said VFW National Commander Keith E. Harman.
