Today, we continue to welcome all military personnel serving our country. Joining our Post enables you to continue serving your God, Country and Community. Our mission is to implement the goals embodied in our preamble below.

Visit us and you will find a very active establishment at reasonable prices. You will meet fellow Legionnaires and those of our Auxiliary, Sons of The American Legion, and those members of VFW O.K. Ingram Ship 1774 and its Auxiliary, and members of AMVETS Post 1775 who all participate in the veterans and community programs mainly geared to the City of La Mesa.  Membership applications are available at the Post.

Not eligible to be a member or are someone who would like to contribute? Want to help the La Mesa community veterans? You may donate directly to us; American Legion Post #282, P.O.
