The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization. We are the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued support of our fellow service members and veterans. San Diego’s District 22 is comprised of 29 American Legion Post’s throughout San Diego County. Each Post has it’s own unique profile and commitment to the American Legion’s 4 Pillars of service within their respective communities. If you are eligible, we invite and challenge you to join our team and help make a positive influence in our local communities.
Help Fellow Legionnaires affected by Hurricane Harvey
Hurricane Harvey is predicted to be the costliest natural disaster in U.S. History and is affecting more than 6,000 American Legion families living in the ravished areas. It is heartbreaking to see people lose their lives, homes, and businesses to the ongoing flooding in Texas. But it’s despicable when scammers exploit such tragedies to appeal to our sense of generosity. If you are looking for a way to give to a reputable organization that will use your money as promised, the National Commander of the American Legion Denise Rohan pledges support to storm victims through the American Legion Temporary Financial Assistance program and our National Emergency Fund (NEF). Legionnaires are encouraged to donate to the National Emergency Fund by going to www.Legion.org/nef and select National Emergency Fund (NEF) in the Program Designation box.
