Mission: 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 wartime 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. Hundreds of local American Legion programs and activities strengthen the nation one community at a time. American Legion Baseball is one of the nation’s most successful amateur athletic programs, educating young people about the importance of sportsmanship, citizenship and fitness. The Operation Comfort Warriors program supports recovering wounded warriors and their families, providing them with "comfort items" and the kind of support that makes a hospital feel a little bit more like home. The Legion also raises millions of dollars in donations at the local, state and national levels to help veterans and their families during times of need and to provide college scholarship opportunities. The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization with great political influence perpetuated by its grass-roots involvement in the legislation process from local districts to Capitol Hill. Legionnaires’ sense of obligation to community, state and nation drives an honest advocacy for veterans in Washington. The Legion stands behind the issues most important to the nation's veterans community, backed by resolutions passed by volunteer leadership. The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteerism. The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.

The American Legion National Headquarters

The following is a letter from American Legion National Adjutant Daniel S. Wheeler regarding the National American Legion Press Association and the National American Legion Media Association:

It is critical for The American Legion to effectively communicate its messaging, priorities and other relevant information to our nearly 2 million members. As a grassroots organization, we count on our members to not only shape The American Legion but to promote the amazing community service activities they perform in their communities across this great nation of ours.
For many years, the National American Legion Press Association (NALPA) has been a group that has attempted to provide the resources and support of its members who are American Legion Family members charged with promoting their post at the local level.
However, last summer it was discovered that NALPA had been operating without proper financial accountability. There were issues with their State of New York based bank that NALPA had been using as NALPA did not have an EIN on file, nor was there any method to add or remove signatories on their banking account.
Following this year’s National Convention, additional research determined that there was no resolution binding The American Legion to NALPA nor any other similar press association. A National Executive Committee resolution, No. 44, dated May 3-4, 1961, rescinded a prior relationship with NALPA and no additional resolution was ever pursued seeking to overturn this resolution.
Due to this banking situation, no supporting resolution and the subsequent trademark issues The American Legion immediately ceased involvement with NALPA.
As NALPA was being shuttered, a new organization arose named the National American Legion Media Association (NALMA), which purported to be a replacement for NALPA, but with new leadership.
After a brief NALMA operating period it was determined that it was in the best interest of all parties involved that The American Legion is not going to pursue a relationship with any current or former organizations along these lines. Instead, The American Legion is going to lead these efforts.
After studying the issue carefully, I have asked Media & Communications Chairman Walter Ivie for his commission to work with the Media & Communications Division on creating a modern approach that would enable American Legion Family members to effectively promote their posts. Chairman Ivie will be coordinating these efforts promptly and will be communicating next steps with American Legion leadership, former NALPA members, department press associations and others. The new approach will also be open for and communicated with American Legion Auxiliary and Sons of The American Legion members, who were eligible under the NALPA guidelines.
Details are still being worked out, but all Legion Family members will be eligible to join the new group. They will continue to receive membership benefits including a press card, a reformatted annual contest, training, resources and more.
Thank you for your continued patience, understanding and support of American Legion programs.

As Veterans Day approaches, I reflect on my past and the pasts of the ones before me. It’s amazing to me how much war has changed throughout our history, from caissons running ammo down the line to unmanned drones flying overhead. The one thing that hasn’t changed is that it is necessary...never pretty...but very necessary if we want to preserve our freedoms and way of life.
As Commander of Post 462, I’d like to say “Thank You” to my fellow Legionnaires for their service and sacrifice for this great Nation. I feel great honor every time I am in your presence. Thank you for your continued service.
Ladies and gentlemen, there are heroes among us, everyday, just another face in the crowd. If you know a Veteran, send them our way...Post 462 is such a small post, and there are so many Veterans in Somervell County. We would love to have them join our Post.

Judging by the comment sections as of late some of you need to be reminded of some things...like what it is to be an American

American Legion Department of Texas

(INDIANAPOLIS, October 8, 2019) -- American Legion National Commander James W. “Bill” Oxford issued the following statement regarding the passing of the organization’s national treasurer, George A. Buskirk:
“The American Legion lost more than a national treasurer today. We lost a treasure. George A. Buskirk was the kindest of gentlemen. We will certainly miss his sound financial leadership, but we will mostly miss our time with this affable, decent and smart man. He served his country during the Vietnam War and rose through the ranks of the Indiana National Guard to become its adjutant general. His intellect was without question. A senior executive in the banking industry, we were fortunate to have this great Legionnaire as our national treasurer for 21 years. We were more fortunate to have known him. Our heartfelt condolences and prayers are extended to the Buskirk family. We shall miss him.”
