Why Join The Legion?
The American Legion is the nation’s largest and most influential veterans service organization. Made up of U.S. wartime veterans and their families, the Legion has made significant contributions to veterans and local communities.
Our Legion Posts
Local American Legion posts have been the foundation of The American Legion for a over Century. Without the membership of local posts, very little would be accomplished across Iowa and the Nation. Legion support of local communities is second to none.
Local Legion Programs
Legion programs change lives across Iowa and the Nation and local progrmas greatly contribute to these programs in numerous ways. Our programs make an impact in the lives of those involved, which provide a positive ripple effect in local communities.
What we Do
The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow servicemembers and veterans.
The American Legion’s love of God and country with a keen sense of devotion to patriotic ideals can be traced back to the earliest roots of the organization.
Children & Youth
Since its founding in 1919, The American Legion has been a staunch supporter of children and youth and that same commitment continues today.
National Security is of the utmost importance to the world and our country to ensure the United States does not lose its status as a first-rate world power.
For more than a century, The American Legion has been the nation’s leading advocate for proper health care and earned benefits for America’s veterans.
We Believe in our military family…
Join over 2 million Veterans
Don’t Let the Opportunity Wait Any Longer
The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteerism. The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.
