The American Legion -
Veterans Serving Veterans
Since its founding in 1919, the 2.7 million-member American Legion is the nation's preeminent service organization for veterans of the U.S. armed forces, including active duty, National Guard and Reserves, and their families. A powerful voice for veterans in Washington, The American Legion drafted the original GI Bill and was instrumental in establishing the agency that today is the federal Department of Veterans Affairs.

help. Donations to Post 1 are gratefully accepted and appreciated. Your
donations will help to offset the Post's absence of income during these
difficult times. We are accepting check payable to The American Legion
LCW Post 1 with the memo line of relief support.
Thank you for your continued support of your Post and may we all come back together soon in our building as a Legion family, with a strong determination to support our American Legion and its Four Pillars.
