The American Legion was founded in 1919 on four pillars of a strong nation: national security, veteran’s affairs, Americanism, and patriotic youth programs. Legionnaires work for the betterment of their communities through more than 13,000 posts across the United States.
COTA has received a commendation from The National Executive Committee of The American Legion. The American Legion and its affiliated organizations – The American Legion Auxiliary, The Sons of the American Legion and the Legion Riders – work for the betterment of veterans and youth in their communities.
