On March 17, 1919, Lt. Col. Thomas W.

Without a gavel to start the meeting, he pulls from his pocket an 1873 silver dollar, which he always carries with him, and raps it on a table. The day’s business includes choosing the organization’s name, membership eligibility criteria, establishment of an executive committee and the preliminary drafting of a preamble to The American Legion Constitution. Miller would later serve as a national Legislative Committee co-chairman, would co-author the organization’s federal charter, serve on the National Executive Committee both for Delaware and Nevada, and in 1968 would be elected Past National Commander by a vote of the 50th American Legion National Convention in New Orleans. After much debate on the final day of the Paris Caucus, in a motion reportedly accelerated by hunger just before lunchtime, “American Legion” is chosen and adopted as a temporary name for the association.

It was 99 years ago today that a group of veterans of the American Expeditionary Force got together in Paris and pondering the following question: How were nearly 2 million newly discharged combat veterans, many disabled and shell-shocked, going to return to civilian lives. Lt. Col. Theodore Roosevelt, Jr. had discussed the idea of a veterans organization among soldiers still stationed in Europe, whose morale was low as they remained camped there awaiting passage home. A month later The American Legion is formed in Paris at the American Officers Club, an old mansion at 4 Rue Gabriel, and Cirque de Paris, an amusement hall. Organizers, who originally expected about 300 to attend, are astounded when hundreds more pour in. Officially, 463 register for the caucus, but more than 1,000 are believed to have been there at some point during the weekend. Located in our Digital Archives are the minutes of the very first meeting. Check them out here:

On March 15-17, 1919, a group of a war-weary veterans of World War I convened in Paris with one goal: to form an organization focused on service to veterans, servicemembers and communities. Less than two months later in St. Louis, The American Legion was adopted as the organization's official name. Thanks to all former and current members of The American Legion. Happy birthday, and thank you for your service to your nation, your communities and each other.
