Working Towards a Brighter Future
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.
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.
