CGJ Post 82, Inc. The American Legion

The American Legion is the nation’s largest wartime veteran’s service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans.

 Aside from providing a place where veterans can gather to relax and socialize with other veterans, Camp Gordon Johnston Post 82 in Lanark Village sponsors and supports several community programs such as: 

  • Assisting veterans with information about disability claims and other services.

  • The American Legion Boys State Program where students attend a comprehensive one week course in state and local government in Tallahassee.

  • Helping local charities like Tonya’s Hope which raises funds to assist local cancer victims with household and travel expenses.

  • They are a major distribution point for Farm Share; distributing fresh and nutritious food every Wednesday to those who need it most.

In January, 2015, District 2 Commander Willie Jackson presented the post with the Post Excellence Award for the 2013-14 year. Post 82 was the only American Legion Post in the state of Florida to receive the award last year.  

But the life’s blood of the American Legion is membership.  More members mean a stronger the voice in Washington when lobbying for veteran’s rights and benefits.  We have a powerful voice in Washington, but can only continue with solid membership.

Post 82 encourages all eligible veterans to join the American Legion to help us fight for veteran’s rights.  If you are interested in becoming a member, please Greg call 850-320-8201.
