The American Legion

Department of DC

The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization focusing on service to veterans, service members and communities. The D.C. Department includes 23 Posts with a total membership of about 2,000.

 

Community service projects, oratorical contests with scholarship benefits, and Boys State, are just a few of the opportunities we provide to the citizens of Washington, DC. Our four pillars are:  Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation, National Security, Americanism and Children & Youth. We look forward to continuing providing service to our veterans, servicemembers and communities.
