The Douglas M. Lyons Dover Post #72 was officially charted on September 26, 1930. The post has gone through many changes but still remains committed to serving Veterans, their families, and our great community.
We are attempting to contact and connect veterans from all branches of service (active duty, retired, reserve) in Stewart County in order to distribute information, provide support for veteran funeral services, conduct Veterans and Memorial Day
ceremonies, and ensuring we never lose focus on the honor, dignity, and respect of those who served and are still serving.
If you are a Stewart County Veteran and are interested in joining or have questions about Dover Post #72, please attend the next scheduled
meeting or contact us.
The American Legion is the nation’s largest and most influential network of U.S. wartime veterans, families, and communities.
With nearly 2.4 million members and some 14,000 community posts, The American Legion is truly a grassroots organization, guided by resolutions that spring from local Legionnaires and are advanced to the state and national levels. From there American Legion resolutions help shape U.S. Policy on many
fronts including veteran’s health care, national security, foreign
affairs, and the economy.
The American Legion’s FOUR PILLARS OF SERVICE are;
• Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation
• National Security
• Children and Youth.
