Legion Department of Nebraska


Welcome to the Nebraska American Legion Website. We have over 33,000  Legionnaires throughout the great State of Nebraska. Within our website  you will find information on our Department Leadership, Programs, and  meetings at both the Department and National level.

American Legion Auxiliary


Our theme this year is “TOGETHER WE CAN.”  This is a  call to work in harmony with not only the members in our own Units, but  with all parts of The American Legion Family.  To quote Anne Frank:  “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” Website

American Legion Riders


The Nebraska American Legion Riders are members of either The American Legion, The American Legion Auxiliary or The Sons of The  American Legion. Our purpose is to use our common interest and  association to promote the aims and purposes of The American Legion as well as motorcycle safety awareness. State Website

American Legion National


The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization 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.

Post 3 Legion Riders


We are NOT a motorcycle club!

We are a part of the nation’s largest wartime veteran’s service organization, members of the American Legion “Family” (Legionnaires, Sons and Auxiliary members) who have joined together to ride our motorcycles for fun and fellowship and to remember and dedicate our self to our original purpose. Service to Our Country.

Petition State Funeral


Our Mission:

“To  convince the President of the United States to designate a state funeral  for the last Medal of Honor recipient from World War II, as a final  salute to the 16 million men and women of the greatest generation who  served in our armed forces from 1941 to 1945.”

Legion History


The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic  veterans organization. Focusing on service to veterans, servicemembers  and communities, the Legion evolved from a group of war-weary veterans  of World War I into one of the most influential 

nonprofit groups in the  United States. Membership swiftly grew to over 1 million, and local  posts sprang up across the country. Today, membership stands at over 2.4  million in 14,000 posts worldwide. The posts are organized into 55  departments: one each for the 50 states, along with the District of  Columbia, Puerto Rico, France, Mexico and the Philippines.

Legacy Meets Vision

The American Legion Centennial  Celebration is not only about honoring the past 100 years of our  history, but also preparing to continue our legacy of service. Events  and activities at posts all around the world will showcase The American  Legion "Still Serving America."
