WHY JOIN THE AMERICAN LEGION?

The American Legion is the place for you to help your buddy and for your buddy to help you. Founded in 1918, it is the largest veteran's organization in the United States with over 3 million members.

Do You Remember?

Do you remember when your unit was under fire? You were scared; you didn't know whether you would ever get home again to see your family or your loved ones. The only thing that you could count on in that instant was your buddy, and you knew he was counting on you too.

Perhaps you were one of the lucky ones who never saw combat. Do you remember the tediousness of garrison life? Do you remember the interminable hurry up and wait? Do you remember the inane make-work projects ordered to do? Your buddy was always there alongside you, making the wise-crack jokes, helping you make it through each day, maybe even covering for you on occasion.

Your buddy still needs you!!!

Maybe your buddy is in a VA hospital; war wounds or time have taken its toll on the body and mind. Perhaps the service member is a young veteran, just discharged from service in the Gulf War or Bosnia, and is having difficulty finding a civilian job. Maybe your buddy is just an ordinary person like yourself, wanting to share stories and comradeship with someone who was in a similar situation.

Your buddy still needs you!!!
