American Flags lining the street

The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation's largest wartime veterans' service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in the community. The organization advocates patriotism and honor, promotes strong national security, and continued devotion to fellow service members and veterans. The Ridgefield post was chartered in November 2007 and is best known for installing the flags at the roundabouts and along the streets in downtown Ridgefield.
