The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization with great political
influence perpetuated by its grass-roots involvement in the legislation process from local districts to Capitol Hill. Legionnaires’
sense of obligation to community, state and nation drives an honest advocacy for veterans in Washington. The Legion stands
behind the issues most important to the nation's veterans community, backed by resolutions passed by volunteer leadership.
The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation
and volunteerism. The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.
Post 164 was chartered on November 11, 1919.
