Welcome to the Dalton American Legion Post 155 Website
The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress on Sept 16, 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome meaningful programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans.
The Dalton American Legion (POST 155) was chartered five months later on Feb 6, 1920 and named the Benjamin F. Sullivan Post in recognition of a Dalton soldier killed in battle during the First World War.
POST 155 is situated on more than 17 acres that includes a banquet hall and bar, a large pavilion and picnic area with horseshoe pits, volleyball net, firepit, restrooms and idyllic pond, and 3 baseball diamonds used by the Dalton Community Recreation Association to support organized community baseball programs. The baseball fields are locally known where baseball legend, Jeff Reardon honed his skills on his way to becoming a major league baseball relief pitcher.
Like only some other posts, POST 155 is home to all members of the Legion family: Legionnaires; Sons of the American Legion Squadron 155; American Legion Auxiliary Unit 155; and American Legion Riders Post 155. The POST 155 family is extremely active providing honor details for parades and other patriotic occasions, funerals, motorcycle runs, fund raising, providing assistance to local veterans, community mentoring, and aiding other veterans organizations.
The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization . The Legions’ sense of obligation to community, state, and nation drives an honest advocacy for veterans, locally and nationally.
The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation, and volunteerism. The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.
