More Than Just Words

American Legion Post 303 practices these words in everything we do. As proud veterans and patriots, we understand that our Nation’s greatest asset is the spirit of community and giving. We firmly believe in the power of the people and of the purposes set forth in the United States Constitution.

Members of our Post and friends and guests to our Post Home are always made to feel welcome. Whether it be a visit to our friendly Canteen and Lounge, singing with our weekly Karaoke hosts or attending one of the many ceremonies we participate in, the camaraderie and love for our community is a compelling force.

Stop by the Post Home at 27678 Imperial Shores Blvd in Bonita Springs and experience this for yourself. Our Post Family includes an American Legion Auxiliary Unit, a Sons of the American Legion Squadron and an American Legion Riders Chapter, all of whom are active participants in all we do.

All of our active groups participate in working in our kitchen which puts on a lunch every weekday, breakfast every Sunday and complete and inexpensive dinner meals on Friday and Saturday nights. These are all open to the public.
