Post 69 - Duran y Gallegos



February 2024

Check out our February Newsletter and Events calendar for the latest events coming soon!


On January 5th 2024, the American Legion Post 69 put up a brand new marquee in the front of the building replacing the old sign that was not safe for our members to be updating.  Funding for this new sign comes from a collaboration between the Sons of the American Legion and Legion. It is a welcome addition to the property giving the Post a modern look and is convenient and safe to update.

Post Commander Dee-Dee Chapman said; “I felt bad getting anyone to change the message on the old sign and was worried about possible injuries. I am very relieved to finally have this marquee project completed and I am extremely grateful for the collaboration between the families coming together to improve something that was seriously needed for a very long time. I feel that the new marquee will give more visibility to American Legion Post 69 and encourage more people to discover or rediscover our wonderful post that we are so proud of.”

The new Marquee looks incredible out in front!

Post 69 was fortunate to have a visit from our National Commander Jim Troiola in early 2023. Commander Troiola was kind enough to spend time with our Post leadership, staff and guests providing his insights.  Our Post Commander Dee Dee Chapman presented Commander Troiola with some items unique to our Post and our area.  We appreciate his visit and welcome him back in the future. Here are some photos of the event:
