District 20 Division 4

The American Legion was founded in 1919 in Paris, France, at the close of World War I. The organization now includes veterans of World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Lebanon/Grenada periods, Operation Just Cause in Panama, Desert Storm, Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Global War on Terror.

The American Legion, since its founding, has endeavored to assist veterans, their widows and children, and their fellow citizens. The North Carolina American Legion, with over 40,000 paid members, is proud to carry on this tradition. We invite you to join us and help support America’s Veterans. American Legion Post 86 meets every 1st Thursday at 5:45 PM for the Fish Fry. The meeting starts at 7:00 PM.
