Before The American Legion celebrated its 100th birthday last month, the first two episodes of the newly produced centennial documentary on the history and influence of The American Legion, "To Strengthen a Nation," were released.

Watch "To Strengthen a Nation: Prelude" and "Episode 1: Formation of The American Legion." The episodes are available on The American Legion's YouTube channel.

The second episode of "To Strengthen a Nation" has been released – "Episode 2: Veterans Serving Veterans." This episode focuses on The American Legion helping its fellow veterans through service officers, the GI Bill, Agent Orange benefits, and more.

“To Strengthen a Nation” has professional actors, who are also Legionnaires, crisscrossing the country to discover how The American Legion was formed, grew, and serves community, state and nation today. Episodes will be posted monthly or bimonthly between now and the 101st National Convention in Indianapolis in late August.
