Join American Legion Post #59

Why Join ?

Why join American Legion? Because we're veterans helping veterans and their families. We all live in the same community together and we support community activities.

So many of our service men and women have seen the inside of one of the VA hospitals; his or her war wounds and/or time have taken its toll on his/her body. So many of our young veterans, recently discharged from service in the Gulf War, Bosnia, Iraq War, Afghanistan and have had difficulty finding a civilian job.

The American Legion is the place for you to help your fellow veterans and for your fellow veterans to help you. Founded in 1918, it is the largest veteran's organization in the United States with over 3 million members.

We are veterans just like you. We care about America and our fellow veterans. Our families and our children. As a member of our Post, we continue to serve our God, our Country and our Community.

Our Legionnaires participate in many community activities such as parades, memorials, dedications, etc.
