Matthew Blount Post 555
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 veteran’s 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. The American Legion has about 2,000,000 members worldwide. American Legion Post 555 is a new Post that received its charter in September 2014 with 30 Charter Members with a goal of reaching 100 new members by the end of 2015. The Post is located at 50 Racquet Club Parkway in Pelham. Post 555 is in the process of developing American Legion Auxiliary, Sons of the American Legion and American Legion Rider Squadrons.
