Office Closed to the Public

For the protection of our staff and their families and to help limit the spread of the COVID-19, The American Legion and American Legion Auxiliary offices are now closed to the public.

On May 12, 2020 the Service Office was temporally closed due to a COVID 19 outbreak at the Federal Building. The Service Office has since reopened with staff splitting time between the office and home. The Federal Building remains closed to the public. Due to the high volume of inquiries, claims, and case load, we ask that everyone please be patient as the will return all emails, faxes and phones calls as soon as possible.
