The American Legion

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 was founded in 1918 in Paris, France, at the close of World War I. The organization now includes veterans of World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Lebanon/Grenada periods, Operation Just Cause in Panama, Desert Storm, Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Global War On Terror.

The American Legion, since its founding, has endeavored to assist veterans, their widows and children, and their fellow citizens. The North Carolina American Legion, with over 40,000 paid members, are proud to carry on this tradition. We invite you to join us and help support Americas Veterans.
