The American Legion has served wartime veterans through promoting patriotism, military service, national security, and dedication to current service members and veterans alike.

The American Legion will celebrate its 101st birthday on Monday, September 16, 2021.

The Legion itself holds events nationwide to celebrate its birthday. All focus on the organization’s mission, core values, plus recognizing both volunteers and those they help. These events promote the Legion’s advocacy for veterans, patriotism, and what the Legion describes as “Americanism.”
