The American Legion, commonly known as the Legion, is a non-profit organization of U.S. war veterans headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana. It is made up of state, U.S. territory, and overseas departments, and these are in turn made up of local posts. The organization was formed on March 15, 1919, in Paris, France, by a thousand officers and men of the American Expeditionary Forces (A. E. F.) and it was chartered on September 16, 1919, by the United States Congress.  Post 288 was orignally chartered in November of 1919, and has served Limestone County and the surrounding area ever since.

Unit 288 embodies the spirit of America that has prevailed through war and peace.  If you are eligible, come and join us!
