If you live in the Wellington area, feel free to check out our Post 390 - Wellington, program. We are glad to see more veterans of the Gulf Wars joining our Post and currently have three female Legionnaires. The coverage for women veterans has improved and we have a Service Officer who can guide you through the VA process...he is your link to the VA. I have been hearing that veterans are hiring attorneys to get care and/or compensation through the VA. Each Post has a Service Officer. It would be appreciated if you joined our Post of 100+ Legionnaires but we assist all veterans in need...feel free to email me at: shwinerj@alpost390.com

About our Post

In 2008 Veterans in Wellington formed American Legion Post 390.

“We have the ability to have a very strong American Legion Post in Wellington and be very community-oriented,” said David Knapp, the post’s commander.

The American Legion is a veterans’ organization that was chartered by the U.S. Congress in 1919. There are about 15,000 posts worldwide with nearly 3 million members. There are 21 posts in the 11th district, which includes Palm Beach, Martin and Okeechobee counties. Membership is open to veterans who have served in a conflict. So far, the Wellington post has 24 members, including one Iraqi war veteran. Knapp said there are upward of 500 veterans in Wellington.
