132nd Annual Convention 2024 

The Legion of Valor’s 132nd Annual Convention will be held 16-20 October 2024 at the historic Antlers Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colorado

The Legion of Valor of the USA will gather in Colorado Springs for their 132nd Annual Convention. Each member of the Legion is the recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor, Navy Cross, Distinguished Service Cross or Air Force Cross — our nation’s highest awards for extraordinary heroism in combat. The Legion of Valor was founded in 1890 as the Medal of Honor Legion and was chartered by Act of Congress in 1955. The Legion is the nation’s oldest veterans service organization.

The Legion of Valor members span the ranks from Private to General yet hold in common the performance of a heroic deed in combat that sets them apart from all others. Only one in 20,000 combatants are recipients of these awards for extraordinary heroism.

At the 132ndt Annual Convention, World War II fighter pilots, Korean War marines, Vietnam infantrymen, Iraq naval gunners and Afghanistan sharpshooters from 100+ years of age to 23 years of age will speak in ways that only a common bond permit. All faced extraordinary conditions in combat and were called upon to risk their lives above and beyond the call of duty — and did so without hesitation.

During their time in Colorado Springs members of the Legion will visit local sites. A solemn Memorial Service is held for Legion members who passed on during the year. Each year the Legion says goodbye to 30+ members, most from WW II, Korea and Vietnam, who have reached their last retreat.

The Legion has a strong family tradition, and members’ spouses and children are regulars at conventions.

Companions and Friends of the Legion of Valor,

Our 132nd Annual Reunion is set for 16-20 October 2024 in Colorado Springs, Colorado! This is the first time the Legion has held their reunion in Colorado since 1890, and the Rocky Mountains are going to provide the most picturesque and inspirational backdrop to this storied event. We have secured the historic Antlers Hotel, right in the heart of downtown Colorado Springs, as our host venue. You will see more details being rolled out in the weeks ahead on registration and sequence of events for this historic week in one of America’s most military friendly cities in America.

Six major military commands call the Pikes Peak region their home. United States Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) is Headquartered in the Springs and is coupled with North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD). The United States Space Force Command is also located at Peterson Space Force Base, which is right next to Shriver Space Force Base. To the South of downtown Colorado Springs, in the shadow of the Cheyenne Mountain, is Fort Carson, home of the world’s finest 4th Infantry Division of the United States Army, and to the North of the city is one of our nations pinnacle institutions of higher learning, the United States Air Force Academy. There is going to be plenty of interaction between all commands and bases with our members of the Legion and the city is looking forward to hosting such a storied organization as ours.

Events are being planned at each of the bases and stations as well as a visit to the National Museum of World War Two Aviation, the Pioneer Museum, and a host of other great local venues as well as provide attendees with some ala carte options to visit other sites in the region at their leisure such as the storied Broadmoor Hotel and Golden Bee lounge, the Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak, Cripple Creek, or for rail enthusiasts, a historic ride on the Royal Gorge railway, listed as one of the most picturesque rides in America.
