Mission And Purpose

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 local communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting a strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans.

Hundreds of American Legion programs and activities strengthen the nation one community at a time. Operation Comfort Warriors program supports recovering wounded soldiers and their families, providing them with "comfort items" while in the hospital. American Legion baseball is one of the nations most successful amateur athletic programs, educating our young athletes about the importance of sportsmanship, citizenship and fitness. The American Legion also raises millions of dollars in donations at the local, state and national levels to help our veterans and their families during times of need.

The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization with great political influence perpetuated by its grass-roots involvement in the legislative process from local communities to Capital Hill. Legionnaires' sense of obligation to "doing the right thing" for those that served drives an honest and genuine advocacy to veterans in Washington. The Legion stands behind the issues that are most important to our nation's veterans, backed by resolutions passed by volunteer leadership.

Our success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteerism. We belong to the people it serves and the communities in which we serve.
