Together, we make a difference

The American Legion is a nonprofit organization open to members & their guests that provides life-changing assistance and guidance for veterans, military personnel, their families and communities in thousands of ways every day around the world.


Help comes in the form of personal assistance, cash grants, donated goods, disaster relief, labor, networking, volunteerism and advocacy.


Your membership helps support Department Service Officers who assist veterans in preparing claims and obtaining their full military healthcare benefits through the VA.


Where else can you spend time with others who understand where you’ve been, and where you are, as a veteran?

Member Discounts

Your membership gives you and your family practical, money-saving discounts that can easily save you many times the cost of your annual membership dues. There are discounts for car rental, home services, electronics and technology, financial and insurance services, travel and lodging, and more.

Hundreds of job fairs and career events every year, all across the map, are coordinated, sponsored, promoted or produced by The American Legion. American Legion business workshops also help veterans and their families pursue their entrepreneurial dreams.

Career Assistance

Local Community Support

Whether holding holiday parties for kids, coordinating regular blood drives, providing a venue for charitable events, mentoring Boy Scouts and junior shooters, or sponsoring elite Legion baseball teams (just to name a few), local posts have a strong heritage of community service.

The American Legion is the nation’s most influential, effective and dependable advocate of veteran affairs fighting for better active-duty pay, improved housing for active-duty families, guaranteed GI Bill education benefits, and helping to ensure that the VA’s medical system can properly care for veterans.
