American Legion Welcomes You
The American Legion: Veterans Strengthening America
We are proud to call Perrysburg, Ohio our home and even prouder to be there for our community. Whether it's laughter over the grill, or being there in the darkest hour, we will always stand tall and rise to every occasion and support the incredible men and women of this great community in every way possible. When we were deployed, it was amazing communities like this one that supported us without fail. The appreciation we have for you goes beyond words and so we will continue to let our actions speak.
The American Legion embraces all current and former members of the military, we celebrate all who contribute to something larger than themselves, inspiring others to serve and strengthen America. You can rest assured that we will always meet the needs of this great community while upholding and defending the United States Constitution, equal justice and opportunity for everyone and discrimination against no one.
Honor those who came before us
Many Perrysburg residents have seen us assemble an armed honor guard team at a moments notice to pay respect to a veteran that is being laid to rest. However, that just scratches the surface of our commitment and perpetual respect for all past military sacrifices to ensure they are never forgotten by new generations.
Making A Difference
Who we appear to be
Many service people have been asked, at one time or another (while seemingly dressed like everyone else in the room), "You're in the military aren't you?" Well, just like the picture above suggests, there is no hiding who we are. We will most likely stand out but, in the face of the unknown, we will seek to create peace from chaos. With that said, when it comes to volunteering for our city there is no job we are either above or below. If the end result is making the lives of our community better then I hope you don't care if we stand out a little bit. We however cannot promise to not be driving a tank if the opportunity presents itself :)
Who we are
We are the young, the experienced, the quiet, the loud, the ones that run toward danger, and the steady hand in chaos. We strive to maintain discipline, righteousness, loyalty, but most of all, humility. As veterans, our experiences are unique but we stand before you now humbled. Humbled to see parents and children laughing together as they walk down 5th street, humbled to see one stranger help another for nothing other than a thank you in return.
Who are we? We were and are the protectors of the Constitution, we did and will fight so that our loved ones can know love, free of discrimination and hate.
Perrysburg, here and now know, we are here for you!
The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave…
