Boys State Information Brief

Greetings from the Commander

We appreciate you stopping by our website. If you are just “surfing”, we hope that you find value in our information and the service we provide to the veterans in our community. If you are a member, we wish to remind you of the enormous amount of information provided here to assist in keeping you abreast of the happenings at “your” Post. In any case, enjoy your “visit” with the “friendliest Post” in South Texas.

Our Post has something for everyone and our monthly calendar is full of activities. Each of these activities is a success because of a dedicated and hardworking membership. Volunteers are the backbone of this type of organization and we never turn away the offer of a helping hand. The work is rewarding and the sense of family is strong and genuine.

Speaking of family, this one is rather large! We have over 1,300 members in the Legion, Legion Auxiliary, Sons of the American Legion and the Legion Riders. We pride ourselves in taking care of and offering something for everyone in our family. We provide entertainment throughout the year for ages between 0 – 100. We have family picnics, Halloween parties for children and adults, Christmas parties for those who want to see Santa and those who wish to dance the night away. We celebrate the New Year, look for Easter eggs, and celebrate the birthday of our country and many, many other fun activities. Our Post has active dart leagues with sponsored teams, shuffleboard tournaments, and Karaoke at the drop of a song note. If you like great foods try our monthly steak nights and breakfasts. Watch the calendar for other cuisine from chili to lasagna, hamburgers to bratwursts; I know you will not go away hungry.

We are proud to sponsor many Legion programs. Boy’s and Girl’s State, Oratorical, Boy Scouts, ROTC Awards and Scholarships are just a few. We are also active in Holiday Food Baskets, visits to the local VA hospital and nursing home, donating time and resources to the community and looking out for ways to promote patriotism in this great land of ours. We have an active Flag program and support local Patriot Guard missions for fallen American heroes!

If you are in the area, please stop by and say hello. We are always looking to make new friends. If you are a member and have not been to the Post in awhile stop in and see what is new. I promise either way you will be delighted.

For God and Country,

Jack Leanhart
American Legion Post 593


What we do:

The American Legion is the worlds largest veterans organization. The American Legion supports and assists the present active duty military personnel along with its commitment to all veterans.

The American Legion was instrumental in the creation of the Veterans Administration and is universally recognized as the originator of the GI Bill of Rights. The American Legion is constantly working to maintain the rights and benefits earned by veterans through service to their country.

Legionnaires are also deeply involved with community activities ranging from hospital services and blood drives to youth programs such as the Boy Scouts, American Legion Baseball, scholarships, Junior Shooting Sports and the annual American Legion Boys State and Boys Nation programs.
