Welcome to the Springfield American Legion Post 227!
Since 1926, our Post has supported Springfield Township's veterans and it has provided them a means to continue their selfless service to society and our community. Additionally, we're committed to supporting currently serving military members, their families, veterans' spouses, and youth programs. We honor our community’s fallen or missing heroes and their family members.
In 2020, the Legion marks 101 years of supporting veterans and America's youth in communities like Springfield across the nation. I encourage all veterans to join us, another American Legion Post, one of many other veteran service organizations, or another cause that helps our community. However you choose, I challenge you to continue to serve.
If you are currently in the military or an honorably discharged veteran and would like to join the American Legion, click here. With the passage of the Legion or the Let Everyone Get Involved in Opportunities for National Service Act on July 30, 2019, Congress and the President removed post-1941 service-period Legion membership restrictions. If you are a family member, survivor, or anyone else passionate about our mission, we also welcome your company, fellowship, and help. Please contact us or come to any of our events.
No words can adequately express my and our Post-members' gratitude and sorrow for the loss endured by our community's Gold-Star family members -- we recognize their sacrifice. We honor the life, actions, and memory of their fallen loved one.
Finally, to all those that currently serve and to all veterans, thank you for your service.
48th Commander, Springfield American Legion Post 227
