American Legion BaseballBack To Scrapbooks
The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic, mutual-help, war-time veterans organization. A community-service organization which now numbers nearly 3 million members — men and women — in nearly 15,000 American Legion Posts worldwide. These Posts are organized into 55 Departments — one each for the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, France, Mexico, and the Philippines.[efsbutton style=”” size=”” color_class=”” align=”left” type=”link” target=”blank” title=”National Legion Site” link=”http://baseball.legion.org/”]
