Dear American Legion Audie L. Murphy Post No. 336 Member:  

Welcome to all new and returning members from all the Post Officers and Members.  

Donations are being accepted for American Legion Programs.  Please contact the Commander to contribute. We are a 501c (Tax-Exempt) veterans organization and receipts will be given for contributions. We have given donations to The "Blue Santa" organization in Leon Valley, the "Camp Corral" organization, Cub Scout Pack 485, the Fisher Houses at the Audie L. Murphy VA Hospital and at the Wilford Hall location, Lackland AFB, and the Military Veterans Day Parade Association, to name just a few.  We also have a medical scholarship program set up at the University of Texas San Antonio, medical campus.  We are already committing $500.00 to the first of many recipients:  The Golden Corral's Camp Corral for disadvantaged children.

The American Legion Audie L. Murphy Post No. 336 presented it’s first medical endowment scholarship to Cassandra Bullock a US Army veteran.  The medical scholarship for veterans is named American Legion Post No. 336 Endowment Scholarship in Memory of Irwin Barath.  Irwin was a longtime Post member and was instrumental along with Post member JC Smith and Gwen Notestine, UT Health San Antonio, in its creation 

Our new Webmaster is Post 336 member and Cub Scout Pack 485 Leader James Fleming.  We are looking forward to a new webpage created by James.  We will keep you posted.

Everyone is encouraged to sign up at least one new member for the Post.  The American Legion 2023 year began on July 1st.  Save $100.00 by becoming a Paid-Up-For-Life member!  Welcome to all our new members and thank you, everyone, for making our membership drive a success!  Please contact our Commander, Richard Wood at 210-827-7985 to see what you can do to support this effort.
