Founded in 1919, The American Legion is the nation's largest and most influential veterans service organization. It is made up of 2 million wartime veterans who focus activities on the organization’s four pillars of Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation, National Defense, Americanism, and Children and Youth.
The Sons of The American Legion: Founded in 1932, the Sons honor the service and sacrifice of Legionnaires. There are more than 355,000 members in the United States. Members include males whose parents or grandparents served in the U.S. military and were eligible for The American Legion membership.
With more than 2,000 chapters, The American Legion Riders have helped raise more than $10 million for the Legacy Scholarship Fund. The Riders also perform a number of services for Legion-supported causes and provide support at military funerals. Participants must be members of the Legion, Auxiliary or Sons.
As the largest women’s patriotic service organization in the world, The American Legion Auxiliary’s membership is around 800,000. With more than 8,000 units in the United States, members are fiercely dedicated to serving, helping, and meeting the needs of veterans, their families, and their communities.
