American Legion celebrates 97 years.
As we celebrate the American Legion's 97th birthday on March 15, duty, honor and country are the three words that capture the story of the American Legion over its more than nine decades in existence. The duty that we have as Legionnaires is spelled out in the Preamble to the Constitution of the American Legion. It’s our duty to “uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America."
While we set aside Nov. 11 as a special day to honor and remember our veterans, we should continuously endeavor to serve our veterans as well as they have served their nation.
