THE 4 PILLARS OF SERVICE & ADVOCACY

VETERANS AFFAIRS
&
REHABILITATION

The American Legion has maintained an ongoing commitment to disabled veterans and their families since the founding of the organization in 1919. The American Legion in the 1920s was instrumental in creating the U.S. Veterans Bureau, forerunner of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The American Legion has continued to be a watchdog as well as an advocate of veterans programs and benefits. 

CHILDREN
&
YOUTH

The American Legion is dedicated to our citizens of tomorrow, and remains committed to ensuring that every child has a safe home, a quality environment, and the opportunity to make their dreams come true. The family is the cornerstone of our American heritage. One of the guiding principles in the American legion’s Children & Youth program is to maintain the integrity of the family home.

NATIONAL
SECURITY

The deep-rooted interest of The American Legion in the security of the nation was born in the hearts and minds of its founders of World War I. The bitter experience of seeing comrades wounded and killed through lack of proper training instilled in these veterans the determination to fight for an adequate defense establishment capable of protecting the sovereignty of the United States.

AMERICANISM

This pillar of The American Legion is dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of basic American concepts and principles. Much of The American Legion’s effort in this area is devoted to education programs and a wide range of citizenship-participatory activities for our nation’s youth. The preservation and enhancement of basic American concepts and principles require an understanding
of those forces that would undermine and destroy them.
