Welcome to our Post’s official website. The Millerton American Legion Post was founded by Veterans of the Great War in September of 1927 and since then has continually served the Village of Millerton and the Town of North East since that time. The posts officially assumed the responsibility for carrying on the traditions of the community Memorial Day’s program in 1928 as the community other veterans organization, the Henry Gridley Post 617 of the Grand Army of the Republic was no longer able to do so.
Hometown Hero Banners are here!
Millerton American Legion Post is pleased to announce that shortly you will be able to submit applications for the next round of our community Hometown Hero Banners in order to honor our local Veterans, past and present. Please go to our dedicated Hometown Hero Banner page to learn more.
