The American Legion turns 98 today, March 15th. It was on this date in 1919 when the first American Legion caucus was convened in Paris, coordinated by members of the American Expeditionary Force. Weary from war and its effects, they were concerned about their lives after discharge, the welfare of their comrades and the general condition of our nation. Such concerns gave rise to a value system, and The American Legion swiftly became the nation’s largest veterans service organization.
Today, with 2.4 million members, the Legion is as strong and relevant as ever.
The American Legion birthday is a time to celebrate. Cake and candles are OK, but this Legion birthday, they are asking for more. They are asking you to share your American Legion story. Share it by speaking in your community and engaging local media. Share it by posting news of your service on your social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, etc.).
Happy birthday again, American Legion… and thank you for all you do every day – for veterans, their families and the communities in which they live!
