Mission & Purpose

organization, is devoted to mutual helpfulness, and is committed
to: The Four Pillars of The American Legion

1. Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation:
2. National Security
3. Americanism
4. Children & Youth

The Legion was chartered and incorporated by
Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to
mutual helpfulness.
The American Legion Is dedicated to a single
purpose: empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with
respect and dignity.

We accomplish this by ensuring that veterans andtheir families
can access the full range of benefits available to them; fighting
for the interests of America’s injured heroes on Capitol Hill; and
educating the public about the great sacrifices and needs of
veterans transitioning back to civilian life.
WHAT MAKES OUR POST UNIQUE:
We are a post with a beautiful building, we
support the Boy Scouts, we have scholarships,  sponsor  Boys
State, and promote Americanism . We participate in several
military ceremonies.  In short, we are a small post with a big
agenda.

It is an incredible challenge to keep every Legionnaire up to date
and informed on the issues that affect every one of us .  
Learn to
use this website and increase the exchange of information
between Post and legionnaires.

Of  course, we know veterans will be using these pages to see
what we are up to,  and might contact us to  join our Post.

We ask every veteran to explore these pages and let us know
what you find   good, bad, or missing - so we can make this a site
a place you could go to regularly for information and would want
to refer others proudly.

Feel free to drop by  to any of our meetings,
