Basic training for the American Legion

Learn about The American Legion
How much do you know about the organization you belong?

Being a member of The American Legion is rewarding. Participating in their rituals and events make the time with the group memorable. The American Legion is founded in 1919 and has a strong history of advocacy and programs, that have impacted individuals, cities, states, and the nation.

Take the Basic Training

When we went off to basic training or boot camp after signing up or being drafted we learned the basics of being a soldier, sailor, airman, or Marine. Without knowing the basics there is nothing to build from.

As a member of the American Legion please consider taking the American Legion Basic Training course.

The website is: and it is free of charge. This is an online self-paced course that teaches Legionnaires about the history and structure of The American Legion. From our founding in 1919 to today. The course is free of charge to members.

I high recommend this program for Legionnaires.

Make it a great day,
