The American Legion’s National Legislative Division serves as the principal advocate of servicemembers, veterans and their families on Capitol Hill where they are responsible for promoting the organization’s positions and priorities to Congress. Doing so, they provide members of Congress and their professional staff with valuable information and expertise, which has defined The American Legion as an institutional authority in the veteran community.

“Grassroots advocacy by Legionnaires to pass legislation that supports the military and veteran community is at the core of what we do as an organization,” said American Legion Legislative Director Lawrence Montreuil. “I’d encourage all members to visit our legislative advocacy center and sign up for advocacy alerts as well as our weekly legislative newsletters so they can keep abreast of legislation that impacts our veterans and servicemembers.”
