About the American Legion
The American Legion is the nation's largest veterans organization, founded in 1919 in the aftermath of the First World War by men and women who had served in what was called "the war to end all wars". We are made up of veterans who have served honorably on active duty in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard. As an organization, we are dedicated to promoting national security, Americanism, children and youth, community service, and veterans assistance, rehabilitation and advocacy. Towards some of these aims The Legion has played a leading role in initiatives and breakthroughs that have affected the lives of Americans in every community, from the U.S. Flag Code to the GI Bill."
