Our Legion and Auxiliary members provided a breakfast and a hot chili lunch for the
 annual Wounded Warrior hunt, held at the Sandhills Hunt club in Jackson Springs, NC on 16 Dec 2023.  The event was a huge success and fun was had by all!

I am your country’s’ flag.

I was proud to serve you but now I am worn and tired. Please repair me, and/or replace me with a strong and new flag of which you can be proud.

If you have a flag that needs to be retired, you can get in touch with American Legion POST 72 Aberdeen NC.

About the American Legion

The American Legion was founded in Paris, France, at the close of World War I, and was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness.  It is the nation’s largest veterans service organization, committed to mentoring and sponsorship of youth programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting a strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service-members and veterans.  The organization now includes wartime veterans of World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Lebanon/Grenada periods, Operation Just Cause in Panama and has grown into the largest veteran's organization in the world.
