The American Legion -

Veterans Serving Veterans

Since its founding in 1919, the 2.7 million-member American Legion is the nation's preeminent service organization for veterans of the U.S. armed forces, including active duty, National Guard and Reserves, and their families. A powerful voice for veterans in Washington, The American Legion drafted the original GI Bill and was instrumental in establishing the agency that today is the federal Department of Veterans Affairs.

 Supporting your LCW Post 1

During the closure, we remain loyal to our Post 1 employees which includes our dedicated bartenders. Some have asked how they can help. Donations to Post 1 are gratefully accepted and appreciated. Your donations will help to offset the Post's absence of income during these difficult times. We are accepting check payable to The American Legion LCW Post 1 with the memo line of relief support.  The building is closed so please mail your checks to The American Legion LCW Post 1, 5400 E. Yale Ave., Denver, CO 80222

Thank you for your continued support of your Post and may we all come back together soon in our building as a Legion family, with a strong determination to support our American Legion and its Four Pillars.
