American Legion Post 8 was established in 1921 making it one of the oldest active post in Alabama. We are a post of about 300 members including Legionnaires, Ladies Auxiliary, Son's of the Legion and Legion Riders. Each of the organizations within our family, working together, makes our post the best it can be. We strive to be involved in both projects that benefit our veterans and our community.
