Mission Statement

The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans service 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 servicemembers and veterans. Hundreds of local American Legion programs and activities strengthen the nation one community at a time.

The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization. The Legion stands behind the issues most important to the nation's veterans community, backed by resolutions passed by volunteer leadership.

Description

The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteerism. The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.
