The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation's largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans.
Hundreds of local American Legion programs and activities strengyhen the nation one community at a time. American Legion Baseball is one of the nation's most successful amateur athletic progragrams, educating young people about the importance of sportsmanship, citizenship and fitness. The Heroes to Hometown programs connects local Legionnaries with recovering wounded warriors and their families. providing a variety of support activities. The Legion raises millions of dollars in donations at the local, atate and national levels to help veterans and their families and to provide college scholarship opportunities.
The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization with great political influuence perpetuated by its grass-roots involvement in the legislation process from local districts to Capitol Hill. Legionnaires' sense of oblication to community, state and nation drives an honest advocacy for veterans in Washington. The Legion stands behind the issues most imortant to the nation's veterans community, backed by resolutions passed by volunteer leadership.
The American Legion's success depends entirely on active membership, paarticipation and volunteerism. The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.
