American Legion Argonne Post 56

 Sherwood, Oregon

Veterans Still Serving America

Located in Sherwood, Oregon, The American Legion Argonne Post 56 received it's charter on August 10, 1920. The first Post 56  Commander was Clyde Hedges.  The last great battle of WWI gave Argonne Post 56 it's name.  In the fall of 1918 General John J. (Black Jack) Pershing led the 1st American Army in the fierce, bloody battles at Saint-Mihiel and the Argonne sectors.  It was here that young George S. Patton was wounded and was awarded the Verdun Medal, and here that Sergeant Alvin York earned the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Argonne Post 56 supports many local and Veteran charities including the  Boy and Girl Scouts of America, Our local schools, several Veteran organizations, and many more. 

We host and participate in many events during each year including holiday food baskets, Christmas toys for kids, Annual Horseshoe Tournament, Robin Hood Festival, the Annual Sherwood Cruisin' (classic car show), and several club events every month (see the Post calendar).  Our outdoor horseshoe pits are almost always available.  The club offers a big-screen (8 by 12 feet) to watch sports events, NASCAR races, and more. We are truly an "American Legion Family" Post.

ABOUT THE AMERICAN LEGION

The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic, mutual-help war-time veteran's organization.  A community service organization which now numbers almost three million members, men and women, in nearly fifteen thousand American Legion Posts worldwide.  The Posts are organized in to fifty five departments (one for each state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, France, Mexico, and the Philippines). The National Headquarters is located in Indianapolis, Indiana with offices in Washington, D.C.  The American Legion employs a regular staff of 300 employees, and is also represented by many thousands of volunteers.

PREAMBLE TO THE CONSTITUTION      

For God and Country we associate ourselves together for the  following purposes:

To uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America;  To maintain law and order;  To foster and perpetuate a one hundred percent Americanism;  To preserve the memories and incidents of our associations in the great wars;  To inculcate a  sense of individual obligation to the community, state and nation;   To combat the autocracy of both the classes and the masses;  To make right the master of might;  To promote peace and good-will   on earth;  To safeguard and transmit to posterity the principles of justice, freedom and democracy;  To consecrate and sanctify our comradeship by our devotion to mutual helpfulness.
