I was wondering if there is a group who sew/make blankets? I have a ton of uniforms that I would love made into a throw memory blanket. The extras I would like to donate for other projects. Thank you! 🇺🇸
Congratulations on your great work at the Lebanon Veterans Home, great example for all other Posts to follow. Bob Berweger, 1st Vice Commander, American Legion Post 21.
My husband and I took our Grandson to your Christmas Party today. We just wanted to say thank-you. We had fun watching him color, pick out a book, get a toy, and meet Santa and his elf. We also want to thank our elf escort, Ms Jingles, she was so sweet. We appreciate all your hard work and all you did for so many children.

[03/28/20]   Hello everyone, keeping you updated on what The Albany American Legion Post 10 has been doing. This morning we delivered 17 bags of eggs for the staff and volunteers of the VA Home in Lebanon to show our appreciation to them for what they are doing for our veterans. At our base we are running a food pantry for veterans and their families to help them with non perishable groceries and we have the wood fire pizza company in the parking lot to make it easy for take out pizza.
Monday we will be delivering to the VA Home in Lebanon much needed masks that our sewers have been working on non stop. We are limited but will do everything we can for all veterans.

Respectfully on behalf of Post 10

Commander Post 10

[03/25/20]   Keeping you informed about the Albany American Legion Post 10. As of now we have numerous people sewing masks for the VA Home and by early next week I will deliver them. Our food pantry for Veterans and their families has been working out and we have been helping numerous families. We continue to do buddy checks of our members and families of veterans. We will continue to look out for those who served our country.

God bless you all

[03/17/20]   EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY - Post 10 Club will be "take out" only. A limited menu will be out tomorrow for breakfast and lunch. No dinners will be held until the State shutdown is lifted. All events and meetings are cancelled until the Federal shutdown has been lifted allowing more than 10 people to meet. Unfortunately, even Celebrations of Life are going to need to be postponed until a later date. Our departed loved ones will understand.

BUDDY CHECKS are more important now than ever. If you know of a veteran or person living alone, give them a call at least once a day to see how they are doing. If you are healthy enough to get out and run errands for them, offer to help. Let's take care of each other.

DONATE If you can afford to help out your Post, please make donations of whatever you can to help us through this shutdown. We are also taking donations of canned goods, dry goods, and other non perishable food products for our food bank. Some of our Veterans and their families will be in desperate need if this shutdown continues for any length of time. We have learned to be pretty thrifty with a sawbuck nowadays!

[03/16/20]   March P.A.L.S. Family Dinner Night Out (Friday Mar 20) has been moved back to lunch from 11am - 3pm. The special will be Reuben Sandwich, coleslaw & fries for $8.00 until sold out. Orders to go add $.50.

[03/14/20]   Slow cooked corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, and carrots. Sound good? Come join us for dinner tonight (March 14) from 5pm to 7pm or until we run out. $12.00

Prepaid take out orders $12.50. If you use a delivery service that will be at your cost.

We are using every precaution to keep our building clean and sanitized. If you don't feel well, please stay home.

[03/14/20]   "Yes Virginia, we are playing Bingo tomorrow."

However, if you are not feeling well, please stay home. Thank you for continuing to support our Veterans and their families.

Yes, we are trying to get you with that sweet puppy face....but seriously, we need your help. Sadly, the Albany Police comes in contact with injured animals at least 5-6 times a month. APD started the Linn Animal Samaritan Fund a few years ago to help pay the costs for emergency vet bills. Without any budget, injured animals had to sit in a kennel until a vet was found whom we could beg to help the animal at no cost. It just wasn't good. If we thought it was injured too badly, we would have to....well, just don't ask. We see a lot of heartbreaking injured animals and some need a vet but there is usually no owner in sight. We decided to enlist the help of anyone who loves animals and drinks canned or bottled beverages! We have started a fundraising account with Oregon Bottle Drop. Blue Bottle Drop bags are available at the front counter of the police station or you can ask any officer that drives a black APD pickup truck for a bag! There is no fee. The bag can then be returned to Bottle Drop and the funds go directly to the Samaritan Fund account. Win-win! The bag tag will open the bag drop door at Bottle Drop at 2141 Santiam Hwy SE and you can donate your cans to help the furry injured animals in Albany! Thank you for your support.

Support Our Post

March 11th from 4 pm to 8 pm Del Taco will donate 10% of the evening's profits to support our Post! If they gross over $2k we will receive 20% of the profits! Please join us in supporting our Veterans, their families and our community. Everyone is welcome.

You can now make donations to Albany American Legion Post 10 through your Fred Meyer's Rewards card. If you do not have the means to sign up with a computer you can bring your card in to us and we will be happy to help you.

[02/03/20]   The Four Chaplains ceremony was this evening. Thank you to our Honor Guard and Legion Riders for providing the honors for this memorial. Thank you also to the Department Chaplain, Floyd Bacon for bringing together local clergy to represent these brave heroes and to tell the story of their sacrifices.

Just now ·
Hi everyone, it is a shame that I drive by business or homes and see different things with the American flag. I am going to write facts and i hope you will read them and realize what it means to be an american.
Lets begin with When you see the Stars and Stripes displayed, stand up and take off your hat. When Old Glory comes along, salute, and let them think what they please! When you hear the band play "The Star-Spangled Banner" while you are in a restaurant or hotel dining room, get up even if you rise alone; sand there and don't be ashamed of it, either! I remember when my children were small and we would go to a ballgame The band is playing the national anthem -"The Star-Spangled Banner!" I would tell them Stand up-and others will stand with you. This tribute to the flag is offered to the country in appeal to all men and women of all races, colors, and tongues, that they may come to understand that our flag is the symbol of liberty and learn to love it.
The Pledge of Allegiance to the flag and manner of delivery is "i pledge of allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and justice for all." should be rendered by standing at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. When not in uniform men/women should remove any non-religious headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart. Persons in uniform should remain silent, face the flag, and render the military salute. Members o he Armed Forces not in uniform and VETERANS may render the military salute in the manner provided for persons in uniform.
Remember:
Never allow the flag to touch the ground or floor
Do not fly the flag in bad weather, unless it is an all-weather flag
the flag can only be flown at night if properly illuminated. Otherwise, it should only be flown from sunrise to sunset.
The flag shoudl always be allowed to fall free.
The flag should never be used to carry, store, or deliver anything.
Never fly the flag upside down except to signal an emergency.
When on a speaker's podium, the flag should be either above and behind the speaker, or to the speakers's right as he faces the audience.
When ripped or worn even faded change the flag. Bring the old flag to an American Legion for proper retirement of the colors at a proper ceremony.
No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. We fought for this America and its flag please respect it.

When you see the boxes in the stores the tell you that there's going to be a toy drive for a Christmas program in our community, that means a child may not have a Christmas without you.

We have a community Christmas party on December 21st and there may be a child that will not have Christmas without your help.

If you think about it, it doesn't take a lot of money to make a child smile. They don't have to know who you are to know that someone cares.

Please help us take care of our children this Christmas and every day of the year.

May you and your family be blessed this holiday season.
