The American Legion was formed during the spring of 1998 and drew its strength from a number of American personnel from military bases around the UK. At the time, it was headquartered at High Wycombe, where it helped the locals maintain the town's independence. As the British Army moved into the area, the Legion handed over control of the town to the Army and offered its services to the military. After that, the Legion participated in a number of operations, helping the Army secure several areas.
When the Americans issued their Operation Omega orders in September 2000, provisions were made for members of the Legion to return home. Just over three-quarters of the unit did. The rest remained in England for a variety of reasons.
Structure: The American Legion is organized along standard military lines, although the basic formation tends to be "primary groups", with a number of primary groups making a platoon. Individual members are assigned to platoons or given support jobs. A small logistics force maintains close contact with its British counterparts. Overall strength is now some 200 men and women, organized in nearly 30 primary groups.
