Upcoming Events

Commander's Message

I look forward to a strong membership year in 2019.  The American Legion serves as your voice in Washington DC when it comes to protecting veterans benefits.  If you need help with your Post Membership Drive, contact me or the Vice Commander for your county. 

Support and Advocacy

The American Legion is a staunch advocate and facilitator of veterans benefits, always ensuring that veterans can properly use and access the benefits they earned with their service.

Veteran's Service Officers are available in each county to assist veterans with access to benefits and services.


The American Legion promotes patriotism in the community through community ceremonies designed to honor and remember those who served.  Programs like Boys and Girls State, Oratorical Contests, and Legion Baseball train and invest in our future generations
