The American Legion continues to advocate for our military, for our veterans and for a strong America. Since 1919, the American Legion has fought for each generation through the four pillars of service.
- Strong National Security
- Taking Care of Veterans
- Mentoring Youth
- Promoting Patriotism & Honor
Our organization’s positions and programs are guided by resolutions passed by American Legion National Convention delegates, and committee and commission members who represent 2.6 million wartime veterans and their families. These programs, and the men and women who take the time to perform them, are what allow The American Legion to make a difference locally, and on the state and national levels.
