The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow servicemembers and veterans.

Hundreds of local American Legion programs and activities strengthen the nation one community at a time. American Legion Baseball is one of the nation’s most successful amateur athletic programs, educating young people about the importance of sportsmanship, citizenship and fitness. The Operation Comfort Warriors program supports recovering wounded warriors and their families, providing them with "comfort items" and the kind of support that makes a hospital feel a little bit more like home. The Legion also raises millions of dollars in donations at the local, state and national levels to help veterans and their families during times of need and to provide college scholarship opportunities.

The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization with great political influence perpetuated by its grass-roots involvement in the legislation process from local districts to Capitol Hill. Legionnaires’ sense of obligation to community, state and nation drives an honest advocacy for veterans in Washington. The Legion stands behind the issues most important to the nation's veterans community, backed by resolutions passed by volunteer leadership.

The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteerism. The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.

American Legion Post 108, Chartered in 1985, is very active in supporting and assisting our local Veterans and listed below are some of the community activities that American Legion Post 108 is also active in.

American Legion Post 108, along with the wonderful citizens of our Northern Arizona communities, was responsible for the building of the Military Service Monument in Prescott Valley, which is a proud edifice dedicated to Veterans Past, Present, and Future. It is also a rallying point for many Veteran related ceremonies and activities. One of the most noticeable local activities of American Legion Post 108 is the displaying of our National Flag (147 as of this date) along the south side of Highway 69 on our national holidays. Post 108 also strongly supports American Legion activities like the Oratorical Contest, Boys State and Girls State, A.L.L.E.C.A. (American Legion Law Enforcement Career Academy whose objective is to provide a first-hand look at the role of a police officer and military member in promoting and safeguarding America’s freedom and rights. This could be described as a one-week mini-police academy or military boot camp. You can find out more about all of these programs by clicking on the American Legion Emblem below.
