The American Legion Riders are an integral part of Post 2. These members go out for monthly “Fun Runs” and host many other events. In addition to the fun activities, they also help tremendously for fundraising for various needs among the post and community. Notably, they serve as escorts for the Gold Star Family members at the Mountain Man Memorial March, serve on flag lines, and provide funeral escorts with the Patriot Guard Riders.
With their support, we were able to get our new land, begin clearing the land, prepare to build the new post home, and they worked together to build the pavilion in May 2019.
These members can frequently be found helping other members of the post and veterans in the community. They often demonstrate true honor by doing good and helping others, even when nobody else is watching.

This is a great chapter of American Legion Post 2. The Sons of the American Legion are for male descendants of a veteran who served in the Armed Forces. This provides another opportunity to serve the veterans of the post if one was unable to serve themselves.
The Sons of the American Legion at Post 2 organize a variety of fundraising activities during the year to support the post, in addition to supporting local charities. Some notable contributions have been to help provide funding to purchase the land for the future home of Post 2, funding for the pavilion installed in May 2018, and more.
The SAL also participates in activities such as an Annual Golf Tournament and Turkey shoots in the spring and fall.

The American Legion Auxiliary serves as both a separate organization and more importantly as a vital part of the American Legion Post 2. The Auxiliary was founded during the first National Convention of the American Legion in 1919. Since then, the women of the Auxiliary have been helping and meeting the needs of our Veteran’s, Military Service Members, and their families. Nationally, ALA members volunteer millions of hours annually which equates to $2 Billion each year. The ALA is notable for helping draft the GI Bill in 1944 and continue to advocate for veterans on Capitol Hill.
