Our Mission

The American Legion strives to promote a better understanding of the principles of democracy and to inculcate (to impress or teach by frequent instruction) among all people a higher appreciation of the benefits of American citizenship.

The American Legion Vision

  • Prepare each generation to meet its citizenship obligations,
  • Maintain a strong national defense,
  • Perpetuate the principles of government embodied in the United States Constitution,
