The American Legion is the nation's largest veterans wartime service organization. The services provided include help with VA claims, assistance in finding employment, support for current members of the military, and financial advice.
The American Legion understands the difficulty some veterans have in returning home. To help guide a successful transition, we have compiled resources focused on jobs, benefits, education, health care, family and finances.
The American Legion is a staunch advocate and facilitator of veterans benefits, always ensuring that veterans can properly use and access the benefits they earned with their service.
Through its Economic Commission, The American Legion works daily across the country to help veterans and their families find and keep rewarding careers. Education, business, employment, licensing and help for those who are on hard times are among the Economic Commission's most important services.
The American Legion is synonymous with veterans education, being instrumental in the first and most recent GI Bill's passage and helping the modern-day veteran navigate the confusing world of education benefits.
The range of health issues facing America's veterans is both wide and ever-evolving. The American Legion recognizes this and provides valuable health-care information on a variety of conditions, as well as regularly updated information on the Department of Veterans Affairs.
