American Legion staff will be available to discuss veterans’ benefits, the Legion’s legislative efforts, membership opportunities and service to the community.
A veterans service officer will be available to discuss claims and other benefits questions.
In keeping with the over 100 years of tradition of The American Legion, the American Legion posts in this area will focus on community service and assistance to veterans.
The scope and nature of the posts’ community service are determined by its members and with input from local civic and community officials.
Since its inception in 1919, The American Legion, the world’s largest veterans service organization, has been a key advocate for veterans and has been responsible for strategic legislative initiatives such as the G.I. Bill and the creation of the Department of Veterans Affairs.
In addition to veteran advocacy, The American Legion supports children and youth activities, patriotic American values, a strong national defense and quality-of-life issues for those serving in today’s armed forces.
