Brewer, ME – Today, U.S. Senator Susan Collins delivered remarks and met with Maine members of the American Legion at their 104th Annual State Convention in Brewer, Maine.

“For more than a century, the American Legion has been committed to ensuring veterans and their families have access to the care and resources they have earned and deserve,” said Senator Collins.  “Members of the American Legion are devoted to improving services for veterans across Maine and the nation, and I was delighted to be a part of their Annual State Convention.”

The American Legion is the largest wartime veterans service organization with 2 million members in more than 12,000 posts in nearly every community in America.  The Legion, established by an act of Congress in 1919, was instrumental in getting the original GI Bill through Congress and in the creation of the Department of Veterans Affairs.
