The Westchester County American Legion
TheAmerican Legion spans throughout our county with 46 local Posts and over 3,380
Legionnaires. It is an incredible challenge to keep every Legionnaire up to date and
informed on the issues that affect every one of them. Learn to use this website and
increase the exchange of information between local Posts and legionnaires and the
Westchester County leadership.
Of course, we know veterans will be using these pages to see what we are up to and
might contact and join their local Post. To help them we have listed all Westchester
County American Legion Posts with information for anyone to contact or visit them.
We ask every veteran to explore these pages and let us know what you find good, bad, or
missing - so we can make this a site a place you could go to regularly for information and would
want to refer others proudly
Mission & Purpose
The American Legion, the nation’s largest wartime veterans organization, is devoted to
mutual helpfulness, and is committed to: The Four Pillars of The American Legion
1. Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation:
2. National Security
4. Children & Youth
The Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans
organization devoted to mutual helpfulness.
American Legion programs and activities strengthen the nation one community at a time.
American Legion Baseball is one of the nation’s most successful amateur athletic programs,
educating young people about the importance of sportsmanship, citizenship and fitness. The
Heroes to Hometowns program connects local Legionnaires with recovering wounded warriors
and their families, providing a variety of support activities. The Legion raises millions of dollars
in donations at the local, state and national levels to help veterans and their families and to
provide college scholarship opportunities.
The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization with great political influence
perpetuated by its grass-roots involvement in the legislative process from local districts to
Capitol Hill. Legionnaires’ sense of obligation to community, state and nation drives an honest
advocacy for veterans in Washington. The Legion stands behind the issues most important to
the nation’s veterans community, backed by resolutions passed by volunteer leadership.
