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 *
