A Message from the Commander...

Department of Nebraska American Legion Commander John Henry PearcyWelcome to the Nebraska American Legion website. We currently have over 350 American Legion Posts and over 22,000 Legion members throughout the State of Nebraska. Our members are proud to be part of the largest veteran's organization in the world.

We are on our second century. Since World War I, Nebraska American Legion posts and its members have promoted the four pillars of The American Legion. These pillars include Americanism, Children and Youth, National Security, and Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation.

The American Legion Family is a family that includes The American Legion Auxiliary, The Sons of The American Legion and The American Legion Riders. All of our Family members work together to fulfill our Four Pillars. My motto for this year is "Character, Values, and Integrity." To succeed as an organization, we must develop and mentor our new members so they can become future leaders. This will ensure we provide for the future success of our great organization.

If you are a veteran, please join The American Legion. You won't be disappointed. As we go into our second century, The American Legion continues to strive and support our military, veterans, their families, our youth, and this great Nation. Contact us at (402) 464-6338. Join us and see how your efforts can help keep The American Legion strong.
