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 programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting a strong national security and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans.

The Palatine Chapter holds their monthly general meeting on the first Thursday of the month at 7:30 p.m. at the American Legion Hall on Palatine Road in Palatine.
