THE AMERICAN LEGION
Post 0143 Methow Valley
P. O. Box 843
Our Hall is quietly settled next to the Methow River at 626 Bridge Street in Twisp, Washington.
We are an assembly of War Era Veterans dedicated to Serving our Methow Valley Communities, hoping to help build a world without war.
For even if war is deemed necessary, it is more essential to build a place of peace to give our Children, setting the example for future generations to come.
We ask for your support to celebrate with us, remembering the great sacrifices made to preserve our Freedoms.
The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness.
It is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans.
Hundreds of local American Legion programs and activities strengthen the nation one community at a time.
American Legion Baseball is one of the nation’s most successful amateur athletic programs, educating young people about the importance of sportsmanship, citizenship and fitness.
The Operation Comfort Warriors program supports recovering wounded warriors and their families, providing them with “comfort items” and the kind of support that makes a hospital feel a little bit more like home.
The Legion also raises millions of dollars in donations at the local, state and national levels to help veterans and their families during times of need and to provide college scholarship opportunities.
The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization with great political influence perpetuated by its grass-roots involvement in the legislation process from local districts to Capitol Hill.
Legionnaires’ sense of obligation to community, state and nation drives an honest advocacy for veterans in Washington.
The Legion stands behind the issues most important to the nation’s veterans community, backed by resolutions passed by volunteer leadership.
The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteerism. The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.
The Methow Valley American Legion Post 143 in Twisp, WA was established in April of 1920. This year 2020 the post will have been in existence for 100 years!
Our commitment is stronger than ever.
