It might not be obvious from this main page, but we have been adding and changing a lot of the pages you can find under the Main menu. If you don’t see them on your mobile device you have to press the “Hamburger” ( the three lines on top of each other next to the word Menu) to get to the full Menu.
Be sure to check out these recent entries: Pearl Harbor Remembrance 2020 under the History Menu and our new community Menu which features a holiday video made by Post Financial Officer and Judge Advocate Steve Tindall.

When we wore the uniforms of our country, and for those that still do, we did not wear our uniforms to political events. We did not endorse a candidate or party with our name, rank and branch of service. The United States military was and is, apolitical.
The American Legion adopted this policy when it was founded. The Legion cannot be effective if we appear as a political organization, we must be apolitical. If you use social media to share your political views, please remove any Legion related apparel, etc., from your profile picture.
We served to protect the right to vote. Volunteer for your candidate, consider becoming a poll worker, use social media express your views, be involved in the political process. When this election is over, remember we are all Americans. One Nation Indivisible.
VOTE, and encourage others to do the same.
For God and Country,
Larry Lewens, Past Commander, Post 21
Because of the pandemic, member meetings have been cancelled until January. That does not mean that we are not active. We are working on improvements to the kitchen to enhance our ability to earn funds necessary to fulfill our primary mission of helping Veterans, our community, and our country. As soon as the Executive Board approves the minutes I’ll be sending out a summary.
We have some plumbing work that needs to be done, and Jerry Jones is back as the Historian Committee Chairman. He has done a outstanding job of saving and organizing our Post history, and we have started a project to digitize articles and pictures. Anyone interested in helping out should contact us.
