The American Legion


Preamble to the Constitution
of The American Legion


For God and Country

we associate ourselves together for the following purposes:


to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America; to maintain law and order; to foster and perpetuate a one hundred percent Americanism; to preserve the memories and incidents of our associations in all wars; to inculcate a sense of individual obligation to the community, state and nation; to combat the autocracy of both the classes and the masses; to make right the master of might; to promote peace and goodwill on earth; to safeguard and transmit to posterity the principles of justice, freedom and democracy; to consecrate and sanctify our comradeship by our devotion to mutual helpfulness.

The American Legion Auxiliary has one great purpose - "to contribute to the accomplishment of the aims and purposes of The American Legion."  The Auxiliary has no purposes which are apart from the aims of The American Legion, and its members serve side by side with the members of The American Legion in a spirit of unselfish devotion to the well being of the American republic.


Veterans programs are supported by The American Legion and Auxiliary.  Ridge Post and Unit 255 are closely involved with The Charlotte Hall Veterans Home.

The American Legion Riders

American Legion Riders meet in over a thousand chapters in every domestic department and in at least three foreign countries. Riders in Iowa have formed an honor guard called The Five Star Freedom Riders, and Riders in Mulvane, Kan., founded the Patriot Guard to protect the sanctity of military funerals from protesters. Riders in all states have escorted military units returning home from combat tours overseas, conducted massive cross-country fundraising events for wounded warriors from all services, and have raised millions of dollars for countless local, state and national charities.
