MEET LEGION POST 27
The legacy of time, honor and values drives The American Legion forward
American Legion Post 27 has been serving veterans in Ocala since 1919. As we begin our 2nd Century of supporting veterans causes, we hope to expand our services and membership. We invite all veterans and their spouses to join us!
We meet at our Post on the 1st Tuesday of every month from 6 to 8:30 pm. Join us for our famous "Always Good, Always Plenty" pot-luck dinner, followed by a program and then a short business meeting. We are now adding a "Virtual Meeting" component for those unable to attend the live meeting.
The American Legion is a social and mutual-aid veterans' organization including members of the United States armed forces. The organization was founded in 1919 by veterans returning from Europe after World War I, and was later chartered as an official American patriotic society under Title 36 of the United States Code. The organization is headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, and also has offices in Washington, DC. The group has nearly 3 million members in over 14,000 Posts worldwide. In addition to organizing commemorative events and volunteer veteran support activities, the American Legion is active in issue oriented U.S. politics. Its primary political activity is lobbying on behalf of the interests of veterans and service members, including support for veterans benefits such as pensions and the Veterans Affairs hospital system. The Legion has also been involved as a conservative voice in more general political and cultural issues
