"Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, meeting schedules remain fluid. Please scroll down to see the current status of our Legion Family meetings for the next few months."
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:
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
The American Legion is one of the best sources of help for any veterans' concerns, whether they be their health, welfare, families, socializing, and especially, supporting your local community.
If you've ever felt left out of the loop of veterans happenings, now's your chance.community.
