Why You Should Belong to The American Legion?
The American Legion is the nation’s largest and most influential network of U.S. wartime veterans, families and communities. From budget hearings to baseball diamonds, combat outposts to children’s hospitals, the Legion has something for everyone under its four pillars of service:
Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation
Children & Youth
With nearly 2.5 million members and some 14,000 community posts, The American Legion is truly a grassroots organization, guided by resolutions that spring from local Legionnaires and are advanced to the state and national levels. From there, American Legion resolutions help shape U.S. policy on many fronts, including veterans health care, national security, foreign affairs and the economy.
The American Legion brought into existence the modern VA, the GI Bill, and dozens of health-care benefits. It helped build the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. The Legion is a national leader in military-to-civilian transition assistance and home-front support for our troops.
The American Legion is also fun. The Legion Riders motorcycle group raises millions of dollars to help children, veterans and families. Conventions, special events, volunteer activities, welcome-home dinners, concerts and holiday observances are among the many other ways Legionnaires make service a pleasure.
WHY I BELONG
“Our goal is to help veterans and their families, educate our community’s children, keep our community safe, and lend a helping hand to those in need.”
