The American Legion National Convention 2016

Overview

Event Overview:

The American Legion hosts its national convention in a different city each year and welcomes to it a large number of attendees. Legionnaires attending the event can take advantage of planned tourism attractions, discounted hotel and travel rates, Legion-sponsored events, and other convention-related offers.

Approximately 9,500 attendees gather at the national convention to help further their cause of patriotism and support for our service men and women, past and present. The national convention of The American Legion includes two other separate conventions: The American Legion Auxiliary and the Sons of The American Legion. The combined membership of the three organizations is near four (4) million worldwide.

Along with the annual business meeting, other significant elements of the national convention include a parade, a patriotic memorial service, exhibits, general sessions with nationally acclaimed keynote speakers, color guard and band contests, receptions and banquets.

About the American Legion:

The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s 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 service members and veterans.
