Why Join The Legion?

The American Legion is the nation’s largest and most influential veterans service organization. Made up of U.S. wartime veterans and their families, the Legion has made significant contributions to veterans and local communities.

Legion Posts

The local American Legion post is the foundation workforce of this hundred year old veteran organization. Without the hard work of members and leadership of the local post, very little would be accomplished by The American Legion locally and nationally.

Legion Programs

American Legion Programs change lives. From our Support Programs to Children and Youth, Legion Programs make an impact in the lives of those involved, thereby impacting our communities for the better. Be sure to take a look.
