OUR POST 18
Meet with people like you, have a great meal and enjoy the company of our members. You won't have to wait long to make a friend or three.
You may already know some of us. We have lots of activities
for both the young at heart and those who want to contribute to our community.
Music, games, Holiday parties, parades, Sports and other events you can participate in.
The American Legion fought for and obtained the GI Bill so veterans can get education after service.
Veterans can help family too. Post members can inform you about opportunities for scholarships to help with college or for a trade.
Our Boys and Girls state programs allow kids to learn more about how our American government works by participating in a mock government. Some of them will be invited to join in the
National program for even greater participation. Some colleges accept this for class credit. Through the Legion's Samsung Scholarshp 10 $20,000
and 88 $1000 awards are made to those who participate.
HELP GETTING AHEAD
Sports programs like the baseball series has introduced several legion players to greatness. If you don't want to go to college but still want a sport carrer then this
may be what you are looking for. Yogi Berra, Ted Williams, Frank Robison, Justin Verlander, Ryne Sandberg, Roy Campanella, Dusty Baker, Albert Pujols, Greg Maddux and Chipper Jones
all used the Legion baseball program in their climb to stardom.
We also provide assistance for Veterans and active duty personnel who need a helping hand. Our Post can provide direct assistance in some limited cases or through
programs like "Operation Comfort Warrior" and Standdown a more comprehensive support. If you are having medical problems we want to help you get the help you need.
