Post 100's January meetings will not be held. Under the States new guidelines and Kings County being in the purple (widespread) tier it is unknown when we will be having our next general meeting. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic the Friday morning Veteran Breakfasts have been canceled until further notice. This is subject to change given the fluidity of the situation.

WELCOME TO THE AMERICAN LEGION POST 100 WEBSITE
American Legion Post 100 is located in Lemoore, in the heart of the San Joaquin Valley of California. The Post was chartered in 1919. Post 100 has always been an integral part of the local community, with many of the Lemoore's business and community leaders being members of Post 100. The Navy's master jet facility on the west coast, NAS Lemoore is located just 7 miles west of town. Commissioned in 1961, NAS Lemoore played a major role in the Vietnam conflict, and remains Central to West Coast Naval Aviation, with thousands of navy personnel passing through the local community. Many sailors made Lemoore their home, so the membership of the Post tends to abound with "Sea Stories". But be assured, we welcome our brothers and sisters from all branches.
Post 100 is committed to serving our Veterans and their families. We have a dedicated Veterans Service Officer, always available to assist any who have need. We have a good working relationship with the City of Lemoore, the Lemoore Recreation Department, Chamber of Commerce, and the Lemoore Police Department. The Post has sponsored Boy Scout Troop 480 since 1932, the Sea Cadet Squadron at LNAS since 1982, the NJROTC at Lemoore High School, participate in Veterans Outreach Programs each year, work with the United Way on their homeless outreach, and always stand ready to assist in any need. We sponsor the annual Veterans Day Parade, the only evening parade in the Valley. We support the Boys State program with the selection of two outstanding candidates from Lemoore High School. There are many talented and dedicated men and women in our membership, complimented by our chapter of Legion Riders, and all take great pride in Post 100. Our General Meetings are held at 7pm on the 1st Wednesday of the month at the Lemoore Veterans Hall located on "D" street. We get together a little early at 6pm to share a meal and some fellowship. Hope that you join us.
