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.
