Excerpt from The Story of the American Legion: The Birth of the Legion, the First of a Series to Be Issued After Each Annual National Convention The American Legion was conceived by practically the entire personnel of the army, navy, and marine corps! Every man in the military and naval establishment did not think of it in just such terms, but most of them knew that there would be a veterans' organization of some tremendous import, and here it is! "A veterans' organization of some kind will be formed." I heard that identical remark not once, but a dozen times on board a transport en route to France as early as September, 1918. In fact, one night in the war zone a group of officers were huddled around a small piano trying to make the best of a lightless evening, and, having sung every song from Keep the Home Fires Burning to You're in the Army Now, paused, longingly toyed cigarettes which were taboo by ship's order, and then began to spin yarns. "Reminds me of a G. A. R. reunion," one second lieutenant from Maine remarked, after a particularly daring training camp adventure had been recounted.
