The American Legion

The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow servicemembers and veterans.

Focusing on service to veterans, servicemembers 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. Membership swiftly grew to over 1 million, and local posts sprang up across the country. Today, membership stands at over 2.4 million in 14,000 posts worldwide. The posts are organized into 55 departments: one each for the 50 states, along with the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, France, Mexico and the Philippines.

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. For a chronology of significant dates in Legion history, click here.

Flag Poles Dedication was held on Saturday, May 13th at the American-Canadian Monument at Forrest Hills Cemetery on Route 43 in Madison at which time the American and Canadian Flags were raised on the newly solar powdered flag poles. The American-Canadian Monument was placed around 1989.

Chaplain will offer prayer.

I dedicate these colors, may they fly as the emblem of the cause for which are fought and for which we now gladly serve. These are the flags of America and Canada. life within its folds is the freedom, loyalty of our nations. Beside it is the flags, on its expense, the emblem of our organizations, the star of victory, the laurel wreath of remembrance, about it all the sun's rays, significant of the light of an even brighter day. I dedicate these colors the purpose of our nations, with them I dedicate to the faithful service of our people in America and Canada.
