National Americanism Commission Action Alert: January 2024

Welcome to Walton F. Hoffmann Memorial Post 179!

In 1919, The American Legion was founded on four pillars: Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation, National Security, Americanism, and Children & Youth. In all the years since, American Legion members have never waivered from this continued service to our country, our community, and our families. 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. These programs make a difference in hundreds of thousands of lives each year; these programs, and the men and women who take the time to perform them, are what allows the American Legion to make a difference locally and on the state and national levels.

We are here to support our fellow veterans, our membership, our community, and our families.  If you, a relative, or a friend seek assistance or want to contact us on behalf of a veteran in need, suffering from illness, or being admitted (perhaps one whom you feel should be) to a medical facility, please do not hesitate to contact us at:


Except for severe weather conditions, Post 179 is open via the front door every Monday from 10:00 a.m. until noon with executive personnel present. The Club door in the back is open seven days a week from 4:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. or 10.00 p.m., depending upon football games and paying customers justifying continuous operations.

Hall Rentals

Contact the Club and Bar Manager, Mandy, for hall rental and calendar availability, or if you might be interested in applying for a bartender position. She may be reached on her mobile at 830.381.9367.
