POST 308, WHO ARE WE
The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic, mutual-help, wartime veteran's organization.On September 30, 1927 thirty-five (35) military veterans of World War I and living in the San Fernando Valley met for the purposes of forming a American Legion Post in the vicinity of Reseda, CA. On October 15, 1927 a temporary charter was issued to Reseda Post 308, on March 16, 1928 a permanent charter was issued; building construction started on Memorial Day 1928 and was completed on November 30, 1928. The Post was formed with the mission of assisting war veterans, those still in the active military, and members of deployed military families by providing care for these needy veterans and military families. It was also formed to provide social and recreational activities for veterans and their families. The Post has always been strongly committed to providing a community gathering place for the diverse residents of Reseda and surrounding townships. It is available for meetings, educational programs, cultural events, and youth services. Additionally, Post 308 strives to instill a sense of pride, history, and responsibility in its membership and the community by preserving the memories and incidents of veterans' associations in the wars of this nation and the sacrifices made by the veteran community. We are a member post of a community-service organization which now numbers nearly 3 million members -- men and women -- in nearly 15,000 American Legion Posts worldwide.
