For God and Country
The American Legion Today there is no accurate
record of the total number of veterans' organizations, but among them all,
none has grown so large or has exercised such wide influence as The American
Legion. None is so intimately identified with the word "veteran".
Congress chartered the American Legion 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.
The membership of the American Legion is comprised of men and women who
have served their country on honorable federal active duty service with the
U.S. Armed Forces during a hostile conflict.
Because eligibility dates remain open, all members of the U.S. Armed
Forces are eligible to join The American Legion at this time, until the date
of the end of hostilities as determined by the government of the United
