My mom and dad were both WWII Navy vets. They were very active in the American Legion. This post was founded in the late '40s, early 50s and the members built the Post Home, cinderblock by cinderblock. I spent many hours here building, later running 'scrap drives' papaer and cardboard recycling) and learning how dedicated folks can build an organization without outside support. My mom was the first woman commander of this post.
