The American Legion is an organization of U.S. war veterans formed in Paris on March 15-17, 1919, by delegates from all units of the American Expeditionary Forces. Their main mission is to sponsor programs that improve veterans communities, such as scholarships, veterans help programs(i.e ending veterans homelessness), and youth sports. They also promote national security, patriotism, and devotion to veterans.
