The American Legion Post 10 is a registered 501C(19) non-profit veterans organization located in Albany, Oregon in the United States. Our  Post was founded in 1919 by veterans returning from Europe after World War I and was later chartered as an official American patriotic society under Title 36 of the United States Code.

We are a social and mutual-aid veterans' organization comprising of members of the United States armed forces and their families that focuses on service to veterans, service members, children and youth and the community. Tragically, our Post building and service memorabilia were destroyed on July 4th, 2010 (of all days) by an arsonist. But what could not be destroyed was our spirit, our will, and our determination to rebuild and continue our mission of service to our community and country.

For nearly a century we have been a leader in our community providing valuable programs such as:

• Scouting
• Youth Baseball
• Boys State / Nation
• Girls State / Nation
• Oratorical Contest
• Scholarships
• Citizenship
• Flag Advocacy
• Flag Etiquette
• Veteran Funeral Honors
• Child Welfare Foundation
• Family Assistance
• Scholarships
• Youth Support
• Family Support Network
• Financial Assistance
• Financial Center
• Community Volunteering

We want to continue this long history of service. As a non-profit organization dedicated to our community, we do not have the financial means to continue our programs in addition to the repayment of our construction loan. 

You have the opportunity to touch the lives of many Americans. With your tax-deductible donation, you can become a part of the greater good and show your patriotic spirit and pride as you help veterans, service men and women, children, and the elderly.

Sadly, without the support of people like you, our post and the programs and services it provides will soon cease to exist.

We sincerely thank you for your time and your support. All donations are greatly appreciated. Please help us spread this message.
