Veterans and Active Duty Military Personnel
Members of the American Legion Post 288 and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1614 in La Crescenta convey our best wishes to all of you during the holidays for your service and sacrifice to keep our country free.
In 2015, our Posts were recognized as the “Outstanding Organizations in Crescenta Valley” which is a distinct honor. This was accomplished through the efforts of many dedicated veterans who recognized the need to give back to our community plus their service to our country. Our highest priority is to be here to serve you and your families. We invite you to attend our monthly meetings and join us afterwards for a snack and to socialize.
The American Legion Post 288 meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 1614 meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. Both meetings are held at 4011 La Crescenta Ave. in La Crescenta. Membership is not a requirement to attend.
To our vets, active military personnel, and their families and to our community we wish you all a wonderful, healthy, prosperous and Happy New Year. God bless all of you and God bless America.
