President Barack Obama is coming to North Carolina to speak to the American Legion convention, where Sen. Kay Hagan says she will talk to him about Washington's commitment to the state's military veterans.


When Patricia Harris became leader of the North Carolina Department of the American Legion, she was the first African-American and the first female to take the post.
