The American Legion celebrates its 100th Anniversary

We are very fortunate to partner with Hanscom Air Force Base personnel reaching out to Veterans in appreciation of their service with events like the Veteran Appreciation BBQ on January 26th.

We visit and support Vets at the Bedford VA, provide scholarships to high school students, promote the Red, White and Blue through youth activities and sponsorships. We actively participate in Town wide ceremonies for Memorial Day, Flag Day, 4th of July, POW/MIA Remembrance Ceremony, and Veterans Day. We also provide long running annual community events like Mother’s Day Breakfast, Senior Thanksgiving Dinner, Santa’s Christmas Party, and many more.

100 years ago The American Legion started caring for our boys after The Great War. In this, our Centennial year, we ask you to reflect on what WWI means to you and your family. Memories, poems, drawings, pictures - anything you reflect on, and provide us will be displayed the weekend before the Super Bowl at our Post. Please share the stories your parents, grandparents, and even great grandparents shared with you.  

Did you know our full name Anthony-Hunt-Hamilton  Post 221 Bedford comes from the three Bedford boys who gave their lives “over there” in The War to End All Wars ? What else will we learn when we all share, at the end of January,  by  participating  in Bedford’s Centennial Reflections…
