Auke Bay Post 25, American Legion

The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic Veterans' organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest wartime Veterans' service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans. http://www.legion.org/.


Auke Bay Post 25 supports the community of Juneau by aiding families in obtaining VA grave markers, as pictured, and working with both cemeteries and Alaska Concrete Casting for the bases. Auke Bay Post 25 also receives unservicable flags and periodically properly disposes of the unservicable flags according to the US CODE while teaching Scouts the proper protocol for the disposal of flags. Auke Bay Post 25 places flags on veterans' graves and conducts the Memorial Day service at Alaska Memorial Park. The Post can also provide guidance to veterans attempting to navigate the VA health care system and perform flag presentations at veterans' funerals.
