Who We Are:
The American Legion Post 101 in Carlisle, PA was formed on July 24, 1919 with the first meeting occurring at the Carlisle Armory on North West Street (now owned by St. Paul’s Lutheran Church). Over the years the Legion post has moved around Carlisle finally settling at its current location in the 1950’s where it has become a fixture of the Carlisle landscape. The post has engaged with the local and veteran communities for over 100 years and looks forward to another century. Check back here often as the historic preservation committee of the post organizes and documents its history.
In 2022, we became a memorial post honoring two local veterans, MSgt Scott R. Ball and 1st Lt Vincent M. Correal.
We are looking to start a Veteran Support activity that helps veterans considering suicide. There is an average of 22 veterans per day that commit suicide and we want to reduce that number as much as possible.
