Our History

The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation's largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans.

Hundreds of local American Legion programs and activities strengthen the nation one community at a time. American Legion Baseball is one of the nation's most successful amateur athletic programs, educating young people about the importance of sportsmanship, citizenship and fitness. The Operation Comfort Warriors program supports recovering wounded warriors and their families, providing them with "comfort items" and the kind of support that makes a hospital feel a little bit more like home. The Legion also raises millions of dollars in donations at the local, state and national levels to help veterans and their families during times of need and provide college scholarship opportunities.

The American Legion is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization with great political influence perpetuated by its grass-roots involvement in the legislation process from local districts to Capitol Hill. Legionnaires' sense of obligation to community, state and nation drives an honest advocacy for veterans in Washington. The Legion stands behind the issues most important to the nation's veterans community, backed by resolutions passed by volunteer leadership.

The American Legion's success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteerism. The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.

Post 336 was chartered on 30 Sept. 1937. What makes the Post unique:

The Post was mostly inactive until Sept. 2008. From Sept. 2008 to Dec. 2008 The Post grew from 12 members to 66 members. On 15 Dec. 2008 the first official Post meeting was held at the Leon Valley City Hall with approximately 30 members in attendance. Presiding over the meeting was Walter Geraghty.

On 11 Sep. 2018 the newly elected Post Officer's were sworn in ending the 10 year tenure of Commander Geraghty and ushered in the beginning for our new Commander Spencer Spriesterbach.
