The American Legion is the nation’s most influential, effective and dependable advocate of veteran affairs fighting for better active-duty pay, improved housing for active-duty families and helping to ensure that the VA’s medical system can properly care for veterans.
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.
