The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization with great political influence perpetuated by its grass-roots involvement in the legislation process from local districts to Capitol Hill. Legionnaires’ sense of obligation to community, state and nation drives an honest advocacy for veterans in Washington. The Legion stands behind the issues most important to the nation's veterans community, backed by resolutions passed by volunteer leadership.
The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteerism. The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.

Northside Post 858 was chartered 24th of May 2002 and named after the Northside Senior Citizens Center where the original clients of VSSA came from. It was the brainchild of Mr. Tito A. Cortez, also the founder and Executive Director of VSSA (Veterans Supportive Services Agency) a nonprofit organization with the advocacy of helping veterans with their claims for service connected injuries against the VA. That is how Post 858 got started.
