The American Legion is a social and mutual-aid veterans’ organization including members of the United States armed forces.

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 fellow service-members and veterans.

The local post, Athens Post 21, is located on West Union St. Meeting spaces are available. Call for details.
