September 16, 1919, the American Legion was given its charter by Congress. This year, the State of Minnesota, and the cities of:

  • Saint Paul
  • Richfield
  • Bloomington
  • Edina
  • Columbia Heights

will recognize the birthday of The American Legion by proclamation and affirmation. Think about asking your city/town to do the same. 



Since our charter, The American Legion has been welcoming VETERANS from all branches of our Armed Forces. Today, we continue to welcome all military personnel serving our country. Joining a Post enables you to continue serving your God, Country, and Community. Our mission is to implement the goals, aspirations, dreams, peace and blessings for our country, friends and families embodied in our preamble below.
