David R. Hall, an AEP retiree who worked at Mountaineer Plant, was elected recently as a national vice commander of The American Legion, the nation’s largest veterans organization.

Hall, of New Haven, W.Va., took his oath of office during The American Legion’s 94th National Convention in Indianapolis. The organization has 2.4 million members in 14,000 posts worldwide.

A retired energy production supervisor at Mountaineer Plant and an AEP employee for 41 years, Hall is a member of Smith Capehart Post 140 in New Haven and has held numerous leadership positions at the Legion’s post as well as state and national levels. He previously served as The American Legion state commander for West Virginia and is a graduate of Point Pleasant High School in Point Pleasant, W.Va.

Elected at the national convention, five vice commanders act as representatives of the national commander. They may preside over meetings of the National Executive Committee or the national convention, and perform other duties for the commander. He is responsible for activities in the states of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Hall retired in 2011 and he was recognized with an AEP Key Contributor award in 2010 for his work as part of a team on the carbon capture and storage project at Mountaineer Plant.

Hall enlisted in the U.S. Army and served in the infantry from 1968 to 1970. He joined The American Legion in 1985. He is married to Susan Hall and has two children, Stacie Pullins and David R. Hall Jr.
