There are nearly 125 American Legion posts across Arizona, but none with a more well-known name than American Legion Pat Tillman Post 117.
The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization. Focusing on service to veterans, service members and communities, the Legion has evolved from a few World War I veterans into the largest wartime veterans’ organization with nearly 15,000 local posts throughout the United States and over 3 million members who care about America, veterans, their families and American youth.
Legionnaires participate in many community activities, including parades, memorials and dedications.
