The American Legion is a patriotic veterans’ organization.
It’s the nation’s largest wartime veterans’ service organization committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of programs in our community, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to service members and veterans. Our Manheim location is proud to partner with local American Legion Post 0419 at 213 North Charlotte Street in Manheim, PA.
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.
They have an “Operation Comfort Warriors” which supports recovering wounded warriors and their families, providing them with comfort Items and support. The American Legion also raises millions of dollars in donations to help veterans and their families during times of need and to provide college scholarship opportunities.
The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteers. The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives. If you have served federal active duty in the United States Armed Forces during any of the wars listed below, have been honorably discharged or are still serving, you’re eligible to join:
- Persian Gulf War
- Operation Just Cause
- World War II
- World War I
