American Legion Ross County Post 62

Welcome to
Post 62

Since 1919, Post 62 has been a leading advocate of veterans issues in South Central Ohio and an active partner in the development and growth of Chillicothe and Ross County.

This site is provided as a service to our members and their families, and as a forum for presenting issues relevant to all veterans.  Take some time to browse through our pages and drop us an  e-mail to let us know how we're doing.

For God and Country, Tim Velarde, Commander

Preamble to the Constitution

For God and Country, we associate ourselves together for the following purposes: to uphold and defend the constitution of the United States of America; to maintain law and order; to foster and perpetuate a one hundred percent Americanism; to preserve the memories and incidents of our associations in the great wars; to inculcate a sense of individual obligation to the community state and nation; to combat the autocracy of both the classes and the masses; to make right the master of might; to promote peace and good will on earth; to safeguard and transmit to prosperity the principles of justice and democracy; to consecrate and sanctify our comradeship by our devotion to mutual helpfulness.



Because The American Legion must always speak with the strong voice of patriotism, of knowledge, and of creative thinking, it needs and wants the membership of all war veterans who believe in individual freedom in these days of change and challenge. If you have an honorable discharge or separation showing a period of active military service during any one of the following periods, you are eligible to belong: April 6, 1917 to November 11, 1918; December 7, 1941 to December 31, 1946; June 25, 1950 to January 31, 1955; February 28, 1961 to May 7, 1975; August 24, 1982 to July 31, 1984; December 20, 1989 to January 31, 1990; plus Desert Storm dates August 2, 1990 to cessation of hostilities.

Every Post is the judge of its own membership.
