American Legion IS America's largest supporter of veterans


    The American Legion is the nation's largest and most powerful organization of U.S. wartime veterans and their families. Today, it counts 2.4 million members who operate through nearly 14,000 posts across the United States and beyond.     Since its inception by an act of Congress in 1919, The American Legion has delivered substantial improvements for veterans, families and communities. The Legion ushered in the modern VA. The Legion drafted and drove home passage of the GI Bill and the Post-9/11 GI Bill. The Legion has brought into existence dozens of health-care benefits for veterans and programs designed to provide decent civilian careers after discharge.
    The American Legion works every day on behalf of all U.S. servicemen and women. It is recognized as a national leader in transition assistance from military to civilian life, providing resources for careers, education opportunities, child care and more. The Legion is active every day. Examples include:
♦    VA volunteers: Millions of community service hours are logged by VA-trained volunteers, and more than $1.5 million is raised annually to assist VA hospitals in local communities.
♦    American Legion Baseball: America's pastime is played out on fields each summer, providing healthy, wholesome activity for young people, some of whom go on to play Major League Baseball.
♦    National Emergency Fund: The Legion's emergency fund provides much-needed funding for victims of disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes and floods.
For those looking to make an impact in local communities, The American Legion has endless opportunities.
