About Us


American  Legion, Inc. is a congressionally chartered corporation formed in Paris  on March 15, 1919 by veterans of the American Expeditionary Forces.
Legionaires  sponsor initiatives designed to improve veterans' well-being, such as  scholarships, veterans' help programs (i.e. ending veterans  homelessness), and youth sports. They also promote national security,  patriotism and devotion to Veterans!



At  the state level, The American Legion is organized into "departments",  which run annual civic training events for high school juniors called  Boys State. Two members from each Boys State are selected for Boys  Nation. The American Legion Auxiliary runs  Girls State and Girls Nation. In addition to Boys State, The American  Legion features numerous programs including American Legion Baseball,  Scouting, Oratorical Contests, Junior Shooting Sports, Youth Alumni, Sons of  The American Legion, The American Legion Riders, and Scholarships at every level of the organization.

Operation Comfort Warriors

Operation Comfort Warriors and Heroes to Hometowns, The American Legion’s two disabled troop support programs, have merged under the Operation Comfort Warriors  banner making all troop-support efforts for wounded, injured or ill  service members and service-connected veterans fall under the umbrella  of OCW – a program that provides comfort items and recreational events  to wounded warriors recovering in military medical facilities and  warrior transition units. The consolidated OCW program will still work  to give all of the aid it previously provided to wounded warriors, such  as, electronics, sweatsuits, gift cards, exercise equipment and other  popular items. Its services will be enhanced by what was previously  provided under H2H – an outreach program that relies heavily on a  national network of volunteers to assist service members and their  families with the transition into civilian life. This included checking  eligibility for temporary financial assistance, housing and family  support. Whereas OCW previously focused on wounded warrior units, Heroes  to Hometowns concentrated on helping individual troops with  disabilities transition home. American Legion Post 924 in Coraopolis
