Welcome To:
Nashville Post 5!

Post 5 was chartered on July 24, 1919. During the next six years Post 5 prepared for the 7th annual national convention which was held in Nashville, Tennessee on September 21,1925. The event was held in the War Memorial Building on the day of its opening. The honored guest at the convention was Tennessee’s war hero, Sgt. Alvin York. At the time of the convention, Post 5 was given a 100-year lease for offices in the War Memorial building from the State of Tennessee.

The American Legion was founded on four pillars: Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation, National Security, Americanism, and Children & Youth. Each of these pillars encompasses a variety of programs that benefit our nation’s veterans, its service members, their families, the youth of America and ordinary citizens.
