The American Legion recognizes that the community is an important part of our American way of life. Legion Posts have, for many years, made American communities better places in which to live.
Community service projects often place special emphasis on the organization of safety-first campaigns, the elimination of fire hazards, establishment of playgrounds and the erection of living memorials.
More than 200 different types of projects, designed for the betterment of communities, are sponsored by more than 14,000 Posts each year.
Realizing that every community is in need of improvements, many American Legion Posts take a leadership role in community bettterment.
