 Welcome to the Paul Stewart Irwin American Legion Post 136.
                   Birth Place of the Patriot Guard
The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nationís largest veterans service organization, committed to mentoring and sponsorship of youth programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting a strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow servicemembers and veterans.
In contrast to other veterans organizations, the American Legion offers a number of local programs and activities to strengthen its commitment to our nationís grass roots and the people we serve. American Legion Baseball is one of the nationís most successful amateur athletic programs; it continues to educate youths on the importance of sportsmanship and develops the quality of our countryís citizenship. The Heroes to Hometowns program is the only nationwide reintegration assistance service for wounded veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. Additionally, millions of dollars in donations have been given to fellow veterans and their families in times of grief, and various scholarship opportunities ensure the future success of our youth.

The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization with great political influence perpetuated by its grass-roots involvements in the legislation process. Legionnairesí sense of obligation to their community, state and nation drives an honest advocacy for veterans in Washington. The American Legion stands not behind politics, but the issues and people that institute progress by focusing on veterans rights and quality of life.

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