Post 153 American Legion Mission Statement
The Saint Johns’ American Legion Post 153 was established and chartered on the 22nd of September 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. We are a wartime veteran’s service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our community, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members, veterans and their families.
Our local American Legion programs and activities strengthen the community, promote successful amateur athletic programs, educating young people about the importance of sportsmanship, citizenship and fitness.
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 veteran’s community, backed by resolutions passed by volunteer leadership.
The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteerism. Our organization belongs to the people it serves and the community in which we thrive.
