Welcome To The American Legion Post 39

The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic, war-time veterans organization, devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is a not-for-profit community-service organization which now numbers nearly 3 million members,men and women, in nearly 15,000 American Legion posts worldwide. American Legion posts are organized into 55 Departments. One for each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, France, Mexico, and the Philippines. Across the country, The American Legion's nearly 3 million members have been, and remain committed to, this nation's youth. Our records confirm that 14,000 local Posts of The American Legion raised more than $25 million last year to conduct programs for young people in the respective communities, an impressive amount that pales by comparison to the time, talent and effort given by our volunteers to the young people of America.

The American Legion Post 39 is an organization of veterans chartered to serve our veterans and their dependents as well as the community, state and nation. We at Post 39 take the American Legion Preamble seriously and strive to adhere to its' doctrine.
