The American Legion was founded upon four pillars of service in 1919. Today, at Vass American Legion Post 296, Inc. we continue to pledge ourselves to... Our Veterans… Our Youth… A Strong National Defense… And Americanism. In partnership with Auxiliary Unit 296, Sons of the American Legion 296, and American Legion Riders Chapter 296, we are guided by these four pillars to shape our work and what we do for our community, state, and nation.
