The American Legion is the nation’s largest, most influential, effective and dependable advocate of veteran affairs. Since 1919, Legionnaires have fought for the rights of servicemen and women. Today we stand as 2.7 million members with over 200,000 Legionnaires from The Department of Pennsylvania. If you have served honorably during any eligible war eras or are on active duty today, serving honorably, become a member of The Pennsylvania American Legion!

We’re veterans just like you who care about America, veterans and their families and our nation’s youth. The Legion is a powerful voice in Washington dedicated to preserving the rights we’ve all earned – and were promised – by our service to the nation we love.

The Pennsylvania American Legion is always there for you and your family – whether it is when we lobby in Washington or at our 800+ local American Legion Posts throughout Pennsylvania. Just like you, we’re “Still Serving America!”.
