The American Legion – Serving Veterans and our community.

Our post has been in Chapel Hill since post-World War I. We formed and created a post on Rosemary Street, near the site of the former North Carolina National Bank building (now CVS). We closed that site and moved with our naval artillery piece to a new site out in the “country.”
That country setting, on 35 acres, is now encircled with houses, a school, hotels, and office buildings. So much for a country setting.
Our mission is to help veterans. Be they old-timers from World War II, Korea conflict (nice phrase for “war”), Vietnam, a series of police actions, Iraq, Kuwait, and on into 9/11 and our current conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan. Our organization is best suited to help veterans with unmet needs, assistance in our community, service to our community, and veterans education and benefits. We also strongly support Scouting.
The American Legion has Veteran Service Officers in each post and in Winston-Salem. Let us help you get the information you need.
Our post building serves all of our local veterans who are members of the American Legion or its Ladies Auxiliary. It is your home, too.
We are working on revitalizing the post and its many resources. You can help make a difference in your town. Come. Join our Post and help us and other veterans make a difference.
