We do it for each other.

We do it because we haven't stopped serving, just like you.

What We Do

The Legion raises millions of dollars in donations at local, state, and national levels to help veterans and their families.

It is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization. The Legion stands behind the issues most important to the veteran's community.

Our success depends entirely on active membership, participation, and volunteerism. We belong to the people we serve and the communities in which we thrive.
