NEWS FLASH!!  Congress has passed and the White House has signed the Let Everyone Get Involved in Opportunities for National Service Act of 2019 – The LEGION Act – which expands definition of war eras to include all who served since Dec. 7, 1941.  The LEGION Act offers American Legion membership eligibility to any U.S. military veteran who served at least one day of active military duty since Dec. 7, 1941 and was honorably discharged or is serving now. The act also affects membership in the American Legion Auxiliary and Sons of the American Legion, expanding eligibility for those groups, as well.

Welcome Veterans! to American Legion Post 246
The American Legion is the largest and oldest veteran organization in the world with over 3,000,000 members. 
The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization. Focusing on service to veterans, service-members and communities, the Legion evolved from a group of war-weary veterans of World War I into one of the most influential nonprofit groups in the United States. Over the years, the Legion has influenced considerable social change in America, won hundreds of benefits for veterans and produced many important programs for children and youth. 

Help us help our veterans join the American Legion.
