Welcome to Joseph J. Duncan Jr. American Legion Post 119 Estes Park, CO



The primary purpose of the American Legion is to provide a support network for Veterans and their families, and Post 119 is committed to that mission.  Beyond that purpose, from the National Legion website we read “The American Legion was chartered ... as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is...committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow servicemembers and veterans. “ (emphases added) In other words, the American Legion exists to serve the community at-large as well as the veterans in the community.  Explore our website to learn about some of the ways we make this happen.
