George Phillos' official membership card from the American Legion, Pulaski Post No. 86 in Chicago, Illinois. The card was issued on April 1, 1935. Like many Greek Americans, Phillos served in the United States military during World War I. In addition to lobbying on behalf of veterans interests, the American Legion served as a means for immigrants who had served in the military to further integrate themselves into American society, interacting with other veterans.
