The American Legion, approved by an act of
congress, is a social and armed forces organization, founded
in 1919 by veterans returning from Europe after World War I.  
The group has nearly 3 million members in over 14,000 Posts
worldwide.

A Post is the basic unit of the American Legion and
usually represents a small geographic area such as a single
town or part of a county.

A Post is used for formal business such as meetings and
a coordination point for community service projects.  A Post
member is distinguished by a navy blue garrison cap with
gold piping.

NY Legion Post 50 of Pelham, New York in
Westchester County,
was established in October 1923,
dedicated to a single purpose: empowering veterans to lead
high-quality lives with respect and dignity.  We accomplish
this by ensuring that veterans and their families, can access
the full range of benefits available.

WHAT MAKES OUR POST
UNIQUE?
We are a small post (we do not even have a building) and yet
we support a Boy Scout Troop (1); we have scholarships;
sponsor Boys' State and promote Americanism.  We
participate in several military ceremonies.  In short, we are a
little post with a big agenda.
