Since our charter on June 28, 1923, the La Mesa Post 282 of The American Legion has been welcoming Veterans from all branches of our Armed Forces. 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. Box 265, La Mesa, CA 91944-0265) or join our Post as a Sponsor (for details, click Sponsors tab on the left). Fully 100% of the monies raised are used for veterans’ issues. Your donations helps us to sponsor children’s scholarships, give aid and assistance to our local needy Veterans and their families, and otherwise help us to continue the financial support to worthy community programs and projects.
