Welcome to the homepage of American Legion Post 10, the largest American Legion Post in the State of Oregon.

The American Legion Post 10 is a registered 501c (19) non-profit veterans organization located in Albany, Oregon in the United States.  Our  Post was founded in 1919 by veterans returning from Europe after World War I and was later chartered as an official American patriotic society under Title 36 of the United States Code.  Our mission is to support our veterans, their families and our community.  Our American Legion family is made up of Legionnaires (veterans*), Auxiliary (wives & daughters of veterans), Sons of American Legion and the Legion Riders (must be a Legion member).    

    We are a social and mutual-aid veterans' organization comprising of members of the United States armed forces and their families that focuses on service to veterans, service members, children and youth and the community. Tragically, our Post building and service memorabilia were destroyed on July 4th, 2010 (of all days) by an arsonist. But what could not be destroyed was our spirit, our will, and our determination to rebuild and continue our mission of service to our community and country.  We will continue to support our veterans and our community.

For nearly a century we have been a leader in our community providing valuable programs such as:

*  Scouting  *  Youth Baseball  *  Boy's State/Nation  *  Citizenship  *  Scholarships  *
*  Flag Advocacy  *  Oratorical Contest  *  Flag Etiquette  *  Veteran Funeral Honors  * 
*  Child Welfare Foundation  *  Family Assistance  *  Family Support  Network  * 
*  Financial Assistance  *  Financial Center  *  Community Volunteering  *  Youth Support  * 
*  Veteran Benefit Assistance  *

Albany American Legion Post 10 Contributions to Albany, Oregon

18 January 1926 - Adopted a Resolution presenting a 1925 Studebaker ambulance to the City of Albany.

1926 - Cooperated with the city council to form a volunteer fire department made up of members of the American Legion, Coast Artillery Company and Business Men’s League of Albany

25 January 1927 - Post 10 and Unit 10 Auxiliary worked with the City of Albany on a project to light the Pacific Highway running through Albany. 

 12 September 1927 the Post sponsored a plan to purchase land for an airfield near Albany.  20 February 1928 the Post leased the property.  24 September 1928 the Post sponsored a bill to place the airfield on the ballot and provided $2,500 for puschasing, equipping and maintaining the airport.  1930 the airport was dedicated by the Post.

10 September 1956 Post 10 presented the Albany School board with a check for $500 for construction of a press box at the football stadium.

1958 funds were provided for the Albany General Hospital building expansion.

4 July 2010 the American Legion Post 10 building was destroyed by arson with all memorabilia lost.  The members of Post 10 worked hard for 4 years to raise funds to finance a new building which was dedicated 14 June 2013.  6 January 2015 the property was put up for sale due to overwhelming debt from the rebuilding and lack of participation of membership to sustain the costs of the overhead to keep the Post 10 Club open for the members.  The Post survives on the financial support of it's members and the community.  All of the work the Post does for our veterans, children and youth programs, community support etc. is currently limited due to available funding.  Please consider making a donation today.  Thank you for supporting our Veterans!
