The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness.  It is the nation’s largest wartime veteran’s 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, veterans and communities.  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.
