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.

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.
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.
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.
