The American Legion is a National non-profit organization started in 1919 right after WWI ended. The effort was to assist those veterans to adjust back into civilian life. The Legion also was there to fight for and to help veterans get benefits to help maintain a happy and healthy life after defending our country.
Honoring veterans is a high priority for the American Legion. We march in parades, do flag raisings, memorials, posting colors at events. If it honors our American Flag or the life of a veteran living or not, this post is willing to honor the flag, a veteran, or military service.
