For over 70-years, Post 423 has proudly served current and former members of the United States military and their families in northeast Indiana. We also continue to strive to honor these men and women who have sacrificed so much to preserve the freedoms we enjoy today.
Along with the other members of our Legion Family; the Legion Auxiliary, Sons of the Legion and the Legion Riders, we’re committed to mentoring youth, sponsoring and supporting community programs and events, advocating patriotism and honor, and promoting strong national security.
Veterans Strengthening America
Since members continue to experience problems renewing their membership using the new on-line system established by National Headquarters, we ask that you pay your dues for 2022 directly to the Post Adjutant. Once problems with the new system are resolved we'll advise our members.
Renewal notices from National Headquarters are preprogramed for mailing. Therfore, if you receive a renewal notice and you're received a 2022 Membership Card you disregard the notice. It typically takes about 4-weeks for the Indiana Department to notify National Headquarters, so a new reminder notice may have been sent.
