What is the American Legion?

The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veteran’s organization. Focusing on service to veterans, servicemembers and communities, the Legion evolved from a group of war-weary veterans of World War I into one of the most influential nonprofit groups in the United States. Membership swiftly grew to over 1 million, and local posts sprang up across the country. Today, membership stands at nearly 2 million in more than 13,000 posts worldwide. The posts are organized into 55 departments: one each for the 50 states, along with the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, France, Mexico and the Philippines.

Placerville Post 119 is managed by local dedicate veterans that are continueing their service to help veterans and their families. Provide a place they can meet-up and socialize with those who have served their country and would like to re-established the bond they had with their fellow serviceman, while enjoying a good time!
