American Legion Harrisburg Post 472
We are the only active veteran post within the Houston I-610 loop, ideally located on the east side of downtown.
Our mission is to assist Veterans, their families and the community. We are few but dedicated to continous service.
If you have proudly served in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines or Coast Guard, we are asking that you assist us in increasing our Memorial Honor Guard Detail.
We do this because we believe that every Veteran and their family should be presented with a time honored tradition.
