American Legion History

The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veteran’s 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. 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.

The American Legion, since its founding, has endeavored to assist veterans, their widows and children, and their fellow citizens. The North Carolina American Legion, with over 40,000 paid members, are proud to carry on this tradition. We invite you to join us and help support Americas Veterans.
