American Legion Post 21
Who We Are
The American Legion was chartered by Congress after a meeting in St Louis, MO. on May 8, 9, & 10, 1919 as a patriotic, mutual-help, war-time veteran’s organization. It is a community-service organization which now numbers nearly 3 million members -- men and women -- in nearly 15,000 American Legion Posts worldwide. These Posts are organized into 55 Departments -- one each for the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, France, Mexico, and the Philippines. Each Department is then divided into Districts and each District is subsequently divided into a number of Posts.
The American Legion's national headquarters is in Indianapolis, Indiana, with additional offices in Washington, DC. In addition to thousands of volunteers serving in leadership and program implementation capacities in local communities to the Legion's standing national commissions and committees, the national organization has a regular full-time staff of about 300 employees.
