VETERANS

YOU decided on your level of involvement.

You served America, now let us ensure you receive your earned benefits.  Whether it is assisting you in filing or updating a VA claim, aiding in family welfare, providing meaningful community service, or socializing/networking with other Veterans, then you should consider joining the American Legion and Redmond Post 161 - Application

The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic Veterans organization.  Focusing on service to veterans, servicemembers, and communities, the Legion evolved from a group of war-weary Veterans of World War I into one of the most influential nonprofit groups in the United States.  Membership swiftly grew to over 1 million, and local posts sprang up across the country.  Today, membership stands at nearly 2 million in more than 13,000 posts worldwide.  

Redmond Post 161 hosts membership meetings on the 3rd Wednesday of each month beginning at 1830 (6:30p).  Meetings are optional and you’ll always be kept informed of Post business as meeting minutes and newsletters are sent monthly.  Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), we offer teleconferencing capabilities to ensure we maintain social distancing.

We meet at - Map

Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2995
4330 148th Avenue NE
Redmond WA  90852

Our Post supports a variety of Legion programs to promote and recognize its citizens

Evergreen State provides a week-long opportunity for High School Juniors to learn about State Government with a paid trip to learn about our duties as citizenship and education on our system of government.

Legion Baseball provides youth opportunities to build comradery, skills, and leadership through sports.  Post 161 supports the Lake Sammamish Baseball Association in this endeavor.

Jr. Youth Shooting Sports offers firearms safety training and healthy individual competition.

We also partner with other Veterans organizations, such as VFW Post 2995 to support local community programs where we assist in providing aid to many who have fallen on challenging times.

If you already have a demanding schedule and would just like to use the Post for relaxation, socialization, or networking, then you're in luck.  We offer our membership substantial savings in sports and entertainment ticket prices.  We have three (3) Seattle Seahawks season tickets and four (4) 5th Avenue Theater season tickets.  You can save 40% in ticket costs for the Seahawks and 35% for the 5th Avenue Theater.  With full access to VFW 2995's Clubroom, there are also a variety of activities available as well.

Tuesdays from 7:00p to 11:00p is Karaoke.  Whether you sing or not, the evening is always entertaining.

Wednesdays from 7:00p to 10:30p is Dining & Dancing.  Typically, our more 'seasoned' members enjoy tunes ranging from the 1920s to today.

Fridays from 6:00p to 8:00p is Bingo.  With 10 games and winnings averaging $100-$110 a game, you're sure to enjoy the chance fun and excitement.

Holidays/Special events are hosted throughout the month.  Sign up for our monthly calendar and newsletter.  It is sent electronically four (4) days before the start of the month and contains the upcoming events.

Finally, the Post is committed to membership socials with a recruitment focus.  These events are designed to be low or no cost to members and a way to recruit new members.  Whether we host an Open House-Membership drive, a Murder Mystery dinner, Kids Halloween House, or Oktoberfest, we ensure membership can enjoy various activities with family and friends and hopefully invite new Veterans.

Please contact our recruiters at 425-883-0161 or send an email to Adjutant
