Transitioning from Active Duty

DOD simply doesn't do enough to prepare our talented men and women leaving the service for their next career.

That's why Legion Wisconsin has partnered with Operation: Job Ready Vets (OJRV) to provide resources from military personnel who have successfully made the transition back to the civilian workforce.

Empowering Veterans

Though our partnership, we deliver one-to-one solutions based on your specific experience and objectives, providing you confidence, education, and career development resources to succeed in your new career.

Serving Families

We understand that it's not just the Veteran in each family who is impacted by station change, transition or a new career. Together, Legion Wisconsin and OJRV stand out from the rest of the Veteran Service Organizations by serving the career needs of spouses, children, and other family members who need us.




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.


On this day in 1919, The American Legion is federally chartered, which authorizes the as-yet unincorporated organization to proceed to the adoption of a constitution and bylaws, elect officers “and do all other things necessary” as outlined in U.S. Code, Title 36, Chapters 41-50. Under Chapter 43, “Purposes of corporation,” much of the language is borrowed from the original draft Preamble to The American Legion Constitution with some notable deviations, such as “to promote peace and good will among the peoples of the United States and all the nations of the earth” and “to cement the ties and comradeship born of service.” The original charter outlines the powers and authority of the organization, membership criteria, naming rights, exclusivity to manufacture and use The American Legion emblem, and a requirement that “the organization shall be nonpolitical and, as an organization, shall not promote the candidacy of any person seeking public office.” #AmericanLegionDay ...
