The Joseph E. Zaloga Post#1520 has been in existance since we gained our charter in 1946. We welcome all eligible veterans to join the Worlds Largest and Greatest Organization in the World. Membership into The American Legion is a continuation of your service to our veterans, community, state and nation.


We are located at 4 Everett Road Extension, just off exit 5 of of Interstate 90,  so we are very accesible.


Our most prominent programs in the Post are, Law and Order, Oratorical, Children and Youth and Veterans Rehabilitation. We annually send numerous boys to Boys State. Our Boy Scout Troop has promoted numerous boys to the rank of Eagle Scout and everyday these boys are taught about Community Service, so they become assets to society as they grow into young men.

We are also very involved at the Stratton V.A. Medical Center, where we host annual Thuteanksgiving and Christmas Dinners for all the ambulatory patients. In addition, our Auxiliary holds monthy Bingo for the patients to offer some entertainment. We also provide them with canteen coupons so the patients can make personal purchases at the VA store.

Our Post meetings are held the 2nd Tuesday of the month, at 7:00 PM except July, August and December. The Auxiliary meets on the 3rd Tuesday at 7:30 PM.   The SAL Squadron meets on the 2nd Tuesday at 7:00 PM.

Our Post Lounge opens at noon 7 days a week and we offer a full bar complement at very reasonable prices. Our banquet hall is as nice as any hotel and it is available for weddings and parties at very competitive prices...and the food here is delicious and the kitchen staff is courtious and professional (see Banquet Menu).

Since our charter in 1946, the Joseph E. Zaloga American Legion Post 1520 has been welcoming Veterans from all branches of our Armed Forces.
