The American Legionoffers veterans help with filling disability claims, discounts on vehicle rentals, hotels and motels stays, and emergency support. The most important offering for a veteran is the comfort of fellow veterans having your back--your six--as you navigate through life after American military service.

Some of us veterans know the tale very well: confusion, heartache, troubled sleeping, doubt, fear, worry, anxiety...and the list goes on and on. It was war, plain and simple. Righteous? Holy? Worthy? No one will forget what happened on “9-11.” But...what is that to you..now..with all those bad memories harassing your every, waking, consciousness, as if you were still asleep? A living horror story that absolutely NO ONE could EVER hope to understand, let alone, comprehend. Yeah...but...not necessarily true.
‘Cause here comes the American Legion. What, you say, is this...Legion stuff? Well, we’re glad you asked. Let’s start with the obligatory public relations news release type info. Celebrating our 95th anniversary, dating back to 1919, shortly after an armistice wasdeclared, ending the “War to End All Wars,” the American Legion was formed to look after all American veterans’ welfare, especially those experiencing their post-active duty life. TheAmerican Legion was a prime mover behind the now familiar, Department of Veterans Affairs, which opened for business in 1929. Yes, that’s right. The Legion was there for vets then,and is definitely here for you now.
Asthe first veterans’ group of its kind, the American Legion wants you to join us to help your fellow vets through the sometimes baffling maze of the VA, plus help you and your family find your rightful place “back in the world.” Back in the day, things may have been unsettling as a man or woman under orders to put your life on the line for America’s continued freedom from terrorists, but...you’re home now. Why not put that need tobe a part of something to use for your community? They can use your leadership, management, and overall, “get-the-job-done”proven ability to work to benefit everyone, right near your own home. But let the Legion be your first contact on your road back to your American world, which helped you become the good person you are today.
