2010_bchsThe American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic, war-time veterans’ organization, devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is a not-for-profit community-service organization which now numbers nearly 3 million members, men and women, in nearly 15,000 American Legion posts worldwide.

American Legion Daisy Mountain Post 128 was established in 2005 and immediately embarked on an ambitious project that larger more experienced posts might have shied away from. During their Charter Year came the first Daisy Mountain Veterans Parade & Family Picnic. In just a few short years, it has become the largest Veterans’ Parade and community celebration in Arizona. It is geared for one purpose only and that is to honor our country’s uniformed service people… past, present and future.

American Legion meetings are held at 6:30 PM on the second Thursday of each month at the Anthem Civic Building, Suite 202, 3701 W. Anthem Way, Anthem, AZ 85086.

Directions: Take I-17 to Anthem Way exit. Travel east on Anthem Way, the Civic Building will be on the right (south) side of the road.
