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.
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
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
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.
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.
Blue Team 6 is Post 3 Honor Squad. We preform well over 200 funerals in 2019 to honor our fallen comrades. We also attend events that require the presentation of our flag. Total of 234
events were attended in 2018. We have already attended over eighty events in 2019. If you would like to become a member of the Honor Squad, contact our office.
“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.”
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.
2,863 posts have shared their post history.
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."
Veterans make up the largest group of people diagnosed with mesothelioma because asbestos was so widely used by the military until the 1980’s. Veterans who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma may qualify for Disability Compensation, Pension and/or medical care through the VA. Surviving spouses and dependents may also qualify for Dependency & Indemnity Compensation (DIC), Survivor Pension and Aid & Attendance.
Are you a veteran struggling with a substance misuse or co-occurring disorder (PTSD, depression, anxiety, etc.)? Are you a friend or other loved one of a veteran, and you want to learn more about substance use and PTSD among veterans or the ways you can help them? If so, you’ll find the answers to your questions on this page, including information on rehab centers and VA options.
Members of the military go through rigorous physical training and are required to make tremendous personal sacrifices. The difference in one’s day-to-day life between working in the military versus post service can be stark, particularly when it comes to physical fitness and finding a renewed sense of community.
That is why we are going to delve into strength sports as the viable option for veterans. Not only can strength sports help veterans maintain or regain their physical fitness, but they can also help fill the need for a friendly support structure made from a community of likeminded individuals.
