   Why should you belong to the American Legion? 

   The American Legion works every day on behalf of all U.S. servicemen and women. It is recognized as a national leader in transition assistance from military to civilian life, providing resources for careers, education opportunities, child care and more.  The Legion is active every day. 

Examples include: VA volunteers: Millions of community service hours are logged by VA-trained volunteers, and more than $1.5 million is raised annually to assist VA hospitals in local communities. American Legion Baseball: America's pastime is played out on fields each summer, providing healthy, wholesome activity for young people, some of whom go on to play Major League Baseball.

 National Emergency Fund: The Legions emergency fund provides much-needed funding for victims of disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes and floods. For those looking to make an impact in local communities, The American Legion has endless opportunities. The Legions services can be classified under the organization's four pillars: Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation; National Security; Americanism; and Children & Youth.

We also try to help those in need in OUR community here in the Hutto area, please join us, and let us know how we can help.
