McLean Post 270 History

McLean Post 270 was established in 1946 after a group of local WWII-era veterans met at the McLean Firehouse for the purpose of forming an American Legion Post in the community. The Post was granted its charter as a duly recognized American Legion Post in December 1949.

A plot of land was purchased and a Post Home was later constructed on our present site at 1355 Balls Hill Road (next to Langley School). The Post served as an early center of activity in McLean with its popular outdoor social functions and organized athletic events for area youth.

Today, with more than 400 members, McLean Post 270 continues to serve the community through its sponsorship and participation in a variety of American Legion sanctioned programs that emphasize Americanism, Children and Youth, and Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation.

We meet monthly to hear informative guest speakers, conduct business, administer our programs, and to enjoy the company and fellowship of our members. Military rank plays no role in our organization and officers are elected based upon their willingness to serve. We regularly socialize through functions such as dinners and get-togethers on special occasions. Our Post Home is a non-smoking facility, does not have a bar, and is wheelchair accessible.

We are supported in our efforts by the women of McLean Unit 270 of the American Legion Auxiliary comprised of mothers, wives, sisters and daughters of eligible veterans. 

Through our fund-raising efforts - such as our popular citrus sales Ė the Post raises the funds necessary to provide financial support to our many worthwhile programs, activities, and events. 

We are the Nationís leaders in promoting patriotic holidays and observances. We proudly supported the Flag of our Country in time of crises, and we continue to support it in time of peace. We are strong advocates of our democratic form of Government, its Constitution, and in the necessity of a strong military force to maintain peace. We know the price of freedom, and we are proud of doing our part in helping preserve Americanís freedom.
