  • Our American Legion Emblem!

    The glowing Emblem of the American Legion, it is our badge of distinction, honor and service.  It stands for God, Country and the utmost rights of all mankind.  Each of its numerous parts has great significance.



    The rays of the sun form the background of our proud emblem and suggests the Legion's principles will dispel the darkness of violence and evil.




    The wreath forms the center, in loving memory of those brave comrades who gave their lives in the service of the United States that liberty might endure.




    The star, victory symbol of World War I, also symbolizes honor, glory and constancy.  The letters "U.S." leave no doubt as to the brightest star in the Legion's emblem.




    The larger of two outer rings stands for the rehabilitation of our sick and disabled comrades.  The smaller inside ring denotes the welfare of America's children.




    The smaller of two inner rings surrounding the "US" represents service to our communities, states and the nation.  The larger inner ring pledges loyalty to Americanism.




    The words "American Legion" embossed upon a field of blue symbolizes our unity in
    truth, remembrance, constancy, honor, service and the principles that guide us
    in our good works as stated in our Four Pillars.
