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.
