The American Legion is a Veterans Organization comprised of veterans who served our country during times of conflict. The purpose of the organization is to promote Americanism, uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution, preserve memories and incidents of our associations in the past wars and promote the prinsiples of justice, freedom and democracy. We do this through comradeship and support of members and others. We endeavor to provide community service, sponsor a Boy Scout troop, the Pinewood and Powder Puff derbies and a candidate to Boy’s State. We provide Thanksgiving meals to deserving families and adminsiter the Memorial Day Parade and services in the Village Park following the parade. We place flags and markers on the graves of veterans interred in cemeteries in the Town of Bainbridge.

A person who joins our American Legion Post would find comradeship and a purpose to help others. Our membership card is good for access to any American Legion Post in the United States or foreign countries.
