Since being chartered in 1975, our American Legion Post has welcomed VETERANS from all branches of our Armed Forces. Today, we continue to welcome all military personnel who are serving or have served our country. Joining our Post enables veterans to continue serving God, Country and Community. Our mission is to partner with others in the Hopewell, VA Community to support a strong national security; provide for the care of veterans and their families; mentor youth; and promote patriotism and honor as embodied in the preamble to the American Legion Constitution, below.
To the wonderful, patriotic citizens of the Hopewell Community. Join our Post as a Booster or Sponsor. (call 804-541-3735 for details). 100% of the monies raised are given back to the Community.
