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 2.7 million members Nationwide, and have over 130,000 Legionnaires from The Department of Florida.
