Walton F. Hoffmann Memorial Post 179


Join the American Legion.  Help us help Veterans and our community.




 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, 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. It’s who we are and what we do.


Thank you for your visit to our website.  Ultimately, we are here to support our fellow veterans, our membership, our community and our families.  If you seek assistance, or are wanting to contact us on behalf of a veteran in need, ill or either being admitted, or you feel should be, to a medical facility, either by yourself or as a relative or friend, please do not hesitate to contact us at:


Except for severe weather conditions the Post building, through the front door, is open on every Monday from 10:00 a.m. until noon with executive personnel present.  Then again, seven days a week, through the Club door in the back 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.


Contact Trudy Kraft, the Club Manager, for hall rental and calendar availability, or, if you might be interested in applying for a bartender position.
