"Why you should belong"                                                                                                              Preamble to the Constitution


I guess that we ask when it comes to this or any                                                                          

organization. With everything that we have to do in our lives, why                         

would any one want to spend their time, monies and energy                                          

joining another organization.                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                               

Valid questions. WHY? I believe when you afford yourself the                                                                                                                               time to read the following, you will see.                                                        

                                                                                                                                                                       

"Why you should belong"


Over the 90+  years since our formation, we have had a major

influence on the course of American history. The GI Bill, written

and named by Legionnaires,  provides education, economic, small

business and home ownership assistance to all veterans who qualify.

The American Legion is our voice in Washington. W continue to work

with our elected  officials at all levels of government to restore veterans

benefits and upgrade those benefits so that those who served and their

​families will be taken care of , just as they were promised.


We also are taking care of our future, our children. We have programs

that focus on education, drug awareness, child literacy scouting, baseball

and flag education. There is something for everyone.


An American Legion Post is basically, Americans taking care of Americans.

As a Legion member, you will open an unending catalog of opportunities,

to expand your life and utilize your unique talents.
