"Celebrating 71 years of service
to our community, state, and nation"
|WE SUPPORT OUR MILITARY FAR AND ABROAD
The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic, mutual-help, war-time veterans organization.
A community-service organization which now numbers nearly 3 million members -- men and women -- in nearly 15,000 American
Legion Posts worldwide. These Posts are organized into 55 Departments -- one each for the 50 states, the District of Columbia,
Puerto Rico, France, Mexico, and the Philippines.
The American Legion's national headquarters is in Indianapolis,Indiana,
with additional offices in Washington, DC. In addition to thousands of volunteers serving in leadership and program implementation
capacities in local communities to the Legion's standing national commissions and committees, the national organization has
a regular full-time staff of about 300 employees.
This site will present our organization's cause or ideas to the world.
As communicating isn't always easy, we'll try to include photos and images that convey our message. We'll also include specific
information about our organization and its members, so no one forgets the people behind the pictures.
