Damascus American Legion Post 171

Welcome to our Website!

We are American Legion Post 171 in Damascus, Maryland. We are veterans, men, and women who have served honorably in the armed forces as prescribed by law. The Post was founded in the fall of 1945. Our Post includes more than 300 Legionnaires, who, like all American Legion (www.legion.org) members, are volunteers who serve with a commitment to support our fellow service members and veterans, mentor our young Americans, sponsor community service programs, and advocate for strengthening our nation’s defense and security, patriotism and honor.

Damascus Post 171’s Legion Family includes our Auxiliary Unit 171 (Eligibility Requirements) (
Joining) and Sons of the American Legion Squadron 171 (www.legion.org/sons).

We raise money for our activities and charitable donations with weekly cash Bingo on Thursday evenings and public events like shrimp feasts and oyster roasts at various times each year. We invite you to join us for these events.

Our Legion Family organizations meet monthly on the second Monday with the SAL and Unit meeting at 7 PM. The American Legion Post 171 meets at 7:30. All meetings are at the Post Home located at 10201 Lewis Drive, Damascus, Maryland 20872. We are continuously seeking and welcoming new members. If interested in becoming one of us in the Post, Auxiliary, or SAL Squadron, please contact us at (301) 253-0769 or info@legionpost171.org.

Thank you for supporting the American Legion.

Post Commander
