Why You Belong

Each year, American Legion department service officers help thousands of veterans receive VA benefits they earned through service to their country.  Legion staff lobbies Congress for better quality of life for U.S. military personnel.  Through American Legion Baseball, nearly 100,000 young men get to experience teamwork and competition each year.

None of these facts may be news to active Legionnaires, but chances are most prospective members do not realize all The American Legion does for people of all ages at the local, state and national levels. Now, it’s much easier to share that information with those prospective members.

The Legion’s “Why You Should Belong” booklet, below, will provide you with information on dozens of Legion programs, as well as the impact of those programs. Join today to help make a difference!
