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.Click here to read more about American Legion Post 390 - Wellington
