Details for Join the Legion Family!

Join the Legion Family!
For over a century, The American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary and
Sons of the American Legion have worked steadfastly, side by side, promoting
patriotism and national security while supporting youth and advocating for veterans and
active-duty military.
While members of The American Legion Family are individually unique, collectively we are veterans that have served their country and continue to serve their community.
All veterans are now eligible to join The American Legion.

You and your family can join us!

Please contact the Post at 563-872-5864
Leonard Ernst at 563-495-0875 or Rich Norpel 319-621-5743.
We encourage all veterans to attend a meeting on the second Thursday
of each month at 7:00 p.m. and see what the American Legion is all about!
