A Message from the Commander...

Department of Nebraska American Legion Commander Gary WootenWelcome to the Nebraska American Legion website. We have 355 American Legion Posts and nearly 30,000 Legionnaires throughout the State of Nebraska. We are all very proud to be part of the largest veterans organization in the world.

For over 100 years, members of American Legion posts in Nebraska have helped promote the four pillars of The American Legion. These four pillars are Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation, National Security, Americanism, and Children and Youth.

The American Legion Family is part of a larger family that includes The American Legion Auxiliary, The Sons of The American Legion and The American Legion Riders. We all work together to carry out these four pillars.

I look forward to the coming year, using my motto of "2019 and Beyond," to help ensure we continue our second century of service to our military and veterans, their families, our great Nation, our communities and our youth.
