The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization. Focusing on service to veterans, service members, and communities, the Legion evolved from a group of war-weary veterans of World War I into one of the most influential nonprofit groups in the United States.

Cardinal Principles of The American Legion
The rehabilitation of all disabled vets
The care of the dependents of those who answered the ‘Final Call’
The care of those who are now suffering from wounds, disease, and want
the education of our children … and service to the community, state, and nation.
