VA Medical Centers Under Review

The American Legion tackles VA issues head on.

The American Legion is based on 4 Pillars. The first of those pillars is Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation. For more than 100 years, the Legion has been the nation’s leading advocate for proper health care and earned benefits for America’s veterans. The Legion was instrumental in creating the Veterans Administration in 1930, and an ardent supporter of its rise to Cabinet status when it became the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in 1989. As the relationship between VA and veterans evolves, the Legion will help VA meet its critical mission.

Legion Wisconsin’s Department Commander annually visits all of the VA facilities in Wisconsin, including the Minneapolis VA and the Iron Mountain VA in Iron Mountain Michigan. The information gathered from these visits is taken to Washington and discussed with Wisconsin’s Congressmen and  Senators. The Department Legislative Committee works diligently to get the proper legislation supported and passed on behalf of Wisconsin’s Veterans. 


It's our mission to enhance the lives of our Veterans and their families, inspire the next generation of Wisconsin leaders, and promote the principles of The Legion in every community across the Badger State.

Together, we can accomplish so much for those who need us. We welcome you to our Legion Family.
