We are the largest wartime veterans organization in the world. On behalf of the Post and the Legion, we welcome you to our website and the "Post 245 Story". We serve our great nation and the local community. Whether still in the armed forces or not, our desire to continue to serve America has never waned.
We have a fully staffed Veterans Service Office that's open every Thursday from 10AM to 3PM, available to help veterans in need. Did you know that our Evergreen Boys State, Girls State, and Oratorical Contest programs award scholarships? In support of Scouting, our Venturing Crew is second to none in the nation. I'm sure you will find an activity you are interested in or we will help you start a new one!
Explore the tabs on the website to learn more about who we are and what we do for the area. Our common bond is we are proud Americans who are still dedicated to serving our community and our fellow Veterans. As you peruse the website, make sure you see our goals for this year, our schedule of events, meeting dates, and points of contact. Check back often as we have frequent updates. We invite you to join us, whether as a member of our Post 245 family or as a supporter.

Induction Center. Recruit Training. Boot Camp. Whatever you or the service branch you entered called it, it was the start of your indoctrination and training so that you could do your assigned job and perform your mission. During the entire time you served, did you ever actually stop training?
Why stop now?
Any organization's success depends wholly on its members and the American Legion is no different. Our Post does great things, but only with your support and your support first comes in the form of your membership. While you may be a PUFL (pronounced Puffle, or Paid Up For Life aka Life Member), most of us are members with annual dues that require a renewal form be transmitted.
The Post asks all of its members, visitors, and guests to join us once a month at our Hall for an "All Hands" meeting. At this gathering of mutual helpfulness, we pool our talents, information, and make decisions on how our Post runs. There are no ranks. We also seek to train everyone on what make the American Legion unique as the largest veterans organization in the world.
