This week, the first two episodes of a newly produced centennial documentary on the history and influence of The American Legion have been released.

Developed from National Headquarters, “To Strengthen a Nation” has professional actors, who are also Legionnaires, crisscrossing the country to discover how The American Legion was formed, grew, and serves community, state and nation today. Episodes will be posted monthly or bimonthly between now and the 101st National Convention in Indianapolis in late August.





View "To Strengthen a Nation: Prelude" and "Episode 1: Formation of The American Legion" on The American Legion's YouTube channel. The documentary also is available on www.legion.org/legiontv under "To Strengthen a Nation."
