The American Legion strives to promote a better understanding of the principles of democracy and to inculcate among all people a higher appreciation of the benefits of American citizenship. To serve the needs of all veterans and their families. To fulfill our commitment to community, state, and nation.
The American Legion Vision
The American Legion is the nation's largest wartime veterans service organization founded on the values, contributions, and sacrifices, of those who answered the nation's call to arms, therefore we must:
• Respond to quality of life needs of all veterans and their families,
• Prepare each generation to meet its citizenship obligations,
• Maintain a strong national defense,
• Perpetuate the principles of government embodied in the United States Constitution,
• Be a values-based organization committed to serving God, country, community and every veteran today, tomorrow and throughout the 21st Century.
Who We Are
The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic, mutual-help, war-time veterans organization. A community-service organization which now numbers nearly 3 million members - men and women - in nearly 15,000 American Legion Posts worldwide. These Posts are organized into 55 Departments - one each for the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, France, Mexico, and the Philippines.
The American Legion's national headquarters is in Indianapolis, Indiana, with additional offices in Washington, DC. In addition to thousands of volunteers serving in leadership and program implementation capacities in local communities to the Legion's standing national commissions and committees, the national organization has a regular full-time staff of about 300 employees.
