Why You Should Belong to
The American Legion
The American Legion is the nation’s largest and most
influential network of U.S. wartime veterans, families
and communities. From budget hearings to baseball
diamonds, combat outposts to children’s hospitals, the
Legion has something for everyone under its four pillars
Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation
Children & Youth
With nearly 2.5 million members and some 14,000
community posts, The American Legion is truly a
grassroots organization, guided by resolutions that
spring from local Legionnaires and are advanced to the
state and national levels. From there, American Legion
resolutions help shape U.S. policy on many fronts, including
veterans health care, national security, foreign
affairs and the economy.
The American Legion brought into existence the modern
VA, the GI Bill, and dozens of health-care benefits. It
helped build the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the
World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. The Legion
is a national leader in military-to-civilian transition assistance
and home-front support for our troops.
The American Legion is also fun. The Legion Riders
motorcycle group raises millions of dollars to help
children, veterans and families. Conventions, special
events, volunteer activities, welcome-home dinners,
concerts and holiday observances are among the many
other ways Legionnaires make service a pleasure.
