For God and
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 States.
