The Preeminent Voice for Veterans
A Nonprofit Community-Service Organization
A Veterans’ Association Devoted to Mutual Helpfulness
The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic, war-time veterans’ organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is a nonprofit community service organization that now numbers nearly 3 million members, men, and women, in nearly 15,000 American Legion posts worldwide.
Message From the Commander
To my fellow Legionnaires, Legion Auxiliary Unit Members, Sons of the Legion, and Legion Riders, my very best wishes in having a fantastic 2022. We have weathered the tragic COVID circumstances we found ourselves in during 2020 and 2021, and come out together as a family. I would like to make this year a year of renewed partnerships, renewed friendships and comradeship. We are bound together by our devotion to mutual helpfulness in supporting our Veterans, our community and our next generation as they continue to serve this great country of ours. I would like us all to demonstrate, not only our commitment to the community, state, and nation, but to each other, as we re-grow a vibrant Gold Star Post 191. A place of fellowship, a welcoming inclusive atmosphere, where we solidify the bonds of service and enjoy the company of those dedicated to the same mission. An active calendar, catering to the young and the experienced, with entertaining events for all, in a place where we all come together. An impactful organization, known throughout the community for our works, for our capability to serve and deliver on our commitment, and for being "the place to be". An engaging organization, drawing to its ranks every eligible qualifying member, man, woman, or child in our community, growing our Post and more importantly, expanding the reach of our mission; service to our Veterans, our Community and our Youth.
For God and Country!
Sam Weinberg, Commander
