“Established in 1926, the Legion is the largest Veterans Service Organization in Canada with more than 320,000 members. Our Mission is to serve veterans, which includes military and RCMP members, and their families, to promote remembrance and to serve our communities and our country.” From The Royal Canadian Legion website.
