American Legion emblem 

 

Every part of The American Legion emblem has meaning. The emblem is laid upon the rays of the sun, giver of life, warmth and courage; foe of the cold, of the darkness, of fear, of apprehension. In turn, each of the emblem’s parts signifies a meaning, which no American Legionnaire who wears the emblem should take lightly, and which he/she should know from the first moment it is put on. Why does the star signify constancy of purpose? Because the stars are fixed in the heavens. As the stars do not wander, so should The American Legion not wander from its fixed purposes. Further, the words “The American Legion” demand that the wearer “shall ever guard the sanctity of home and country and free institutions ....” There shines the emblem of The American Legion. It is your badge of pride and distinction, honor and service. 

 The rays of the sun :The rays of the sun form the background of the emblem and suggest the Legion’s principles will dispel the darkness of violence and evil. 

 The wreath  :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. 

 Outer rings  :The larger of the two outer rings  signifies the rehabilitation of our sick  and disabled comrades. The smaller  inside ring denotes the welfare of  America’s children. 

 The star, victory symbol of World War I, symbolizes  honor, glory, and constancy  The letters leave no doubt as to the brightest star in the Legion’s  constellation. 

 Inner rings, The smaller of two inner rings set upon  the star represents service to our  communities, states and nation. The larger  outer ring pledges loyalty to Americanism. 

 The words ”American Legion” tie the  ring together for truth, remembrance,  constancy, loyalty, honor, service,  veterans affairs and rehabilitation,  children and youth, national security  and Americanism.

The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic, war-time veterans organization, devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is a not-for-profit community-service organization which now numbers nearly 3 million members, men and women, in nearly 15,000 American Legion posts worldwide.   

    The American Legion's national headquarters is in Indianapolis, Indiana, with additional offices in Washington, DC. In addition to thousands of volunteers serving in leadership and program implementation capacities in local communities to the Legion's standing national commissions and committees, the national organization has a regular full-time staff of about 300 employees.
