The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest veterans service organization, committed to mentoring and sponsorship of youth programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting a strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans. This Post focuses on the needs of veterans in Northern Illinois. We are located in Northbrook, IL.
We celebrated 100 years of American Legion on November 11, 2019. Support our Vets.
