Our Mission

The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 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 servicemen and veterans.

Our Purpose

The purpose of the American Legion is to serve the needs of Veterans of all wars, their widows, and dependent children.  We are also active in developing and promoting legislative activities that establish or protect the rights of Veterans.
