The American Legion is an organization of U. S. Military veterans that share the ideals of service and patriotism. If you are serving or have served in the military during war, you may be eligible for membership. Eligibility dates of service can be found on the national website www.legion.org -> Members -> Join the Legion. For more information contact the Post Commander or Adjutant via info on our Home Page.

The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic, mutual-help, war-time veterans organization. A community-service organization which now numbers nearly 3 million members -- men and women -- in nearly 15,000 American Legion Posts worldwide. These Posts are organized into 55 Departments -- one each for the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, France, Mexico, and the Philippines.

Post 134 has a fantastic history. Past members include Bobby Jones and Ty Cobb. The current membership includes members who have distinguished combat records in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. Our members have distinguished themselves in diverse fields in the business world and hold leadership positions in civic and community organizations. We participate in the American Legion's Boys State and the annual Memorial Day Ceremony at the Marietta National Cemetery, the Oratorical Contest, and other activities as presented by members.

Post 134 is the home of the award winning bulletin, the "Bugle Call Rag". Recently, the National American Legion Organization made awards to the "Bugle Call Rag" and Post 134 members Frank Murphy and Vic Mahoney for outstanding editorials. The newsletter is currently edited by Phil Mathis.

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 the great 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.
