The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veteran's organization. Focusing on service to veterans, service members and communities, the Legion evolved from a group of war-weary veterans of World War 1 into one of the most influential nonprofit groups in the United States. Since our charter March 21st 1947, our post Sgt. Preston Ashley American Legion Post 228 has been welcoming Veterans from all branches of our Armed Forces. Today, we continue to welcome all military personnel serving our country and also all members of the Auxiliary, Sons of the American Legion, and Riders. The American Legion mission is to implement the goals, dreams, aspirations peace and blessings for our Country and Community, friends and families embodied in our preamble below.
