Welcome! We are The American Legion Department of Florida; the Nation’s Oldest, Largest and Most Active Veterans Organization. We pride ourselves in taking care of our Active Duty Service Members as well as Veterans who defended the American way of life in the past. You may not be aware of all that the American Legion does, not only in communities like yours across the state of Florida, but across the country and around world. “How?” you may ask. Well, let’s look a little closer.
The American Legion represents over 2 million members, and there’s strength in our numbers. We fight on Capitol Hill everyday to ensure that out troops not only get the equipment and training they need to fulfill their duties, but also to ensure they are treated properly and receive the benefits they deserve upon returning home. We know what it takes, being prior service members ourselves. You may have heard of the Montgomery G.I. Bill – but did you know that it was penned by The American Legion.
