A Short History:

 

Our post in Mechanicsburg, PA was chartered by The American Legion on July 15, 1919, with 43 members. The first meeting was held on Thursday October 2, 1919 at the Old Hometown Hall. The original 1919 charter of our Post is framed and hangs on the wall in our Legion Commanders Office, it lists the names of our charter members. 

 

Our Post is over 900 members strong and growing. Our Post is an integral part of the greater Mechanicsburg community and proud advocate for veterans on the local, state, and national level. Our local membership extends throughout the county.
