The American Legion has done a lot of great things for both veterans and the community members that we serve.

Did you know that in 1944 the American Legion played a major role in getting the US Congress to pass the GI Bill? If you have been able to use the GI bill you know what a great benefit that is.

Please join us on October 25th in Newhall!

For God and Country!
