Organizational Structure

Each post in The American Legion is a separate and distinct unit of our organization. Each post functions independently of other posts. The District Commander and his team has the responsibility for providing the link between individuals, posts and department. The department, in turn, provides the link between the districts, and your national office ties all 55 departments together. The part the District Team plays in this communication process is vital to the success of The American Legion.

Veterans are crucial to Iowa’s very livelihood! If $1,444,373,000 does not get local, county and state officials to recognize the power Iowa Veterans bring to the table, then we are not communicating this information. This dollar amount was the VA total expenditure in Iowa FY2018.
Another way of looking at this information is that Congressional District 3 Veterans brought $442,367,000 into our Congressional District in total VA expenditures. This represents Iowa jobs, federal tax dollar in Iowa’s economy, medical care received that may have not normally been paid for providing Medicaid and Medicare relief for other Iowans.
