WHO ARE WE?

The American Legion  is  a nonprofit group of veterans wanting to serve their resident  communities, after giving their lives and families to safeguard America,  through  the U.S. Armed Forces. On a local level, we band together in  "posts," where the mission of  the Legion takes place daily. Legionnaires are intrinsically motivated by our Four Pillars:

  • Children and Youth Programs
  • Americanism
  • National Security
  • Veterans Rehabilitation

OUR GOAL!

The American Legion offers veterans help with  filling disability claims, discounts on vehicle rentals, hotels and  motels stays, and emergency support. The most important offering for a  veteran is the comfort of fellow veterans having your back--your six--as  you navigate through life after American military service.

Our Four Pillars  are the best guide to just how far Legionnaires will go to aid fellow veterans and their families
