Throughout its history, Post 237 has been a leader in the growth and development of Huntsville and Madison County, as well as supporting our Nation’s military service veterans. Its membership rolls include celebrated military heroes from Madison County, distinguished city, county, state, and national government leaders, and respected leaders in civic and public service, as well as private business.
Since our charter, our American Legion Post has been welcoming VETERANS from all branches of our Armed Forces. Today, we continue to welcome all military personnel serving our country. Joining our Post enables you to continue serving your God, Country and Community.
