“Still Serving America” is the motto of The American Legion. It speaks to our post mission statement. Veterans who continue their service to America by still serving their community. Veterans whose involvement in the community creates and supports the feeling of camaraderie. The American Legion and Post 523 makes up the nation's largest and most respected organization of wartime veterans.

The American Legion was founded in 1919 in Paris, France, at the close of World War I. The organization now includes veterans of World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Lebanon/Grenada periods, Operation Just Cause in Panama, Desert Storm, and Enduring Freedom.

   The American Legion, since its founding, has endeavored to assist veterans, their widows and children, and their fellow citizens. The North Carolina American Legion, with over 40,000 paid members, are proud to carry on this tradition. We invite you to join us and help support Americas Veterans.
