American Legion
Department of Rhode Island  





You may have heard that we are a small state, but we take immense pride and have deep loyalties to our state and our country. New England is rich in history, and Rhode Island was at the forefront of Colonial America. 

While early settlers laid the foundation for our democratic way of life, service to country has played an important role in the Ocean State. 


Our Post, Unit, and Squadron members are dedicated to the Four Pillars of the Legion:


♦ Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation

♦ National Security

♦ Americanism

♦ Children and Youth


If we can be of service to you, let us know.

If you can be of service to us, even better!

We can always use quality people to assist in our many projects.
