Cokato American Legion

The Cokato chapter of the American Legion was formed in late September, 1919, not long after the Legion’s National Convention in Minneapolis.  Eightedd veterans of World War I signed a petition requesting charter from the state and national organizations. George A. Borg was elected as temporary Chairman, J.W. Kaufman as Secretary.  

 

In fulfillment of our Mission, the American Legion adheres to the following purposes:

 

  • To support and advocate for veterans, active military, and their families

  • To support the initiatives and programs of the American Legion

  • To foster patriotism and responsible citizenship

  • To award scholarships and promote quality education and literacy

  • To provide educational and leadership opportunities that uphold the ideals of freedom and democracy and encourage good citizenship and patriotism in government

  • To increase our capacity to deliver our Mission by providing meaningful volunteer opportunities within our communities

  • To empower our membership to achieve personal fulfilment through service not self
