The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 "For God And Country" as
a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest veterans service organization,
committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism
and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans.
Hundreds of local American Legion programs and activities strengthen the nation one community at a time. American
Legion Baseball is one of the nation’s most successful amateur athletic programs, educating young people about the
importance of sportsmanship, citizenship and fitness. The Operation Comfort Warriors program supports recovering
wounded warriors and their families, providing them with "comfort items" and the kind of support that makes a hospital
feel a little bit more like home. The Legion also raises millions of dollars in donations at the local, state and national
levels to help veterans and their families during times of need and to provide college scholarship opportunities.
The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization, 501 [c] with great political influence perpetuated
by its grass-roots involvement in the legislation process from local districts to Capitol Hill. Legionnaires’ sense of
obligation to community, state and nation drives an honest advocacy for veterans in Washington. The Legion stands
behind the issues most important to the nation's veterans community, backed by resolutions passed by volunteer leadership.
The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteerism. The organization
belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.
In the spirit of "Service Not Self", the mission of The American Legion Auxiliary is to support the American
Legion and to honor the sacrifice of those who serve by enhancing the lives of our veterans, military, and their families,
both at home and abroad. For God and Country since 1919, we advocate for veterans, educate our citizens, mentor youth,
and promote patriotism, good citizenship, peace, and security.
Founded in 1932, The Sons of The American Legion exists to honor the service and sacrifice of Legionnaires
and to strengthen the four pillars of The American Legion.
