ABOUT THE AMERICAN LEGION

The American Legion, our nations largest wartime veterans’ organization, was founded in 1919 by a group veterans returning home from Europe after World War One. A few years later, the American Legion was chartered as an official American patriotic organization under title 36 of the United States Code. The Headquarters for the American Legion is located in Indianapolis, Indiana. The group has nearly 3 million members in over 14,000 Post worldwide.

Sons of the American Legion meet at Post #769. The members include men of all ages whose parents or grandparents served in the US military and were eligible for membership in the American Legion. To learn more about this organization, please contact Post #769.

The American Legion Auxiliary is very active at Post #769. They honor the sacrifice of those that served in the military by assisting in programs and enhancing the lives of veterans, the military and their families. If you are interested in becoming a member of the Auxiliary, contact Post #769 and a member will contact you.

To All Veterans: Thank you for your service!
