ABOUT THIS POST

                                              CHARTER DATE: September 28, 1994

Post 76 was first Charted in 1994, and is one of  the many American legion post in Nevada. We are based in Las Vegas. Our meetings are generally held on the third Sunday of the month.


Welcome to the official website for American Legion Post 76 in Las Vegas, Nevada! The purpose of this site is to present information for local veterans [of all eras] and their families, along with information which can be of use to veterans around the U.S.  We will offer the ability to view our  newsletter online, list local and national resources, and list events that  Post 76 is involved with.


The links above will take you to the various partitions of this site. We will update information when appropriate and add more when we have more.  We intend this site to be easy to use, and full of useful or interesting facts.  Visit the pages in this site to see what help is available in Nevada, what events are upcoming in Las Vegas and around the country, and what the American Legion Post 76 is all about.

July 4th parade  Summerlin Patriotic Parade


Summerlin Patriotic Parade



Attached is the handout from the Summerlin Patriotic Parade on Friday July 4, 2014.  We will be staged at the E15 location in the Escort South area along Hillpointe just to the west of Hills Center and to the east of Spring Gate Lane.  We will be much closer to Spring Gate, but understand that you cannot drop off participants at Spring Gate and Hillpointe.  If you are driving to the parade and not one of our few vehicles with passes, Commander Forman suggests parking in his neighborhood, just a short walk from our staging area.  He lives at 1960 Faywood St., Las Vegas, NV 89134. Map to Forman's House . The assembly time is listed at 0730 hrs so that we are all there and ready to step off by 0830.  Since we are near the end of the escort, I would guess that it would be closer to the 0900 hrs start of the main parade.  As such, wear light clothes, of course your legion hat or other appropriate military cap.  It will likely be a bright sunny day, so you may want to consider sunglasses as well. 
If you plan on attending, YOU MUST notify the commander at akan01@centurylink.net to let him know.  He must know if you are able to walk the approximately 1 mile parade route, or if you need to be transported by the few Model T Fords that will be joining us as always.  The spots for seats in the Model Ts are very limited, so it is imperative that if you need to ride you contact the Commander immediately.   The Model T club usually brings some family, and the Model Ts are very narrow by today‚Äôs standards so there are only a few seats left at this time.  It would also help him know if you plan to march because our entry is very long already but he still may need individuals willing to carry a flag in our color guard. 
In years past, this has always been a really fun time for us to get together and get the recognition that many of never had from the general population.  All four years I have been in, I was amazed at the reaction from the crowd as we approached.  It was heart moving at the least!

POST NAMESAKE:


The membership came up with the name "Spirit of Freedom". It went well with our number 76. It would also reflect upon the freedom gained from the 1776 Government of the King of England, who would not allow the "Second class citizens" of the Colonies to be considered equal to those living in England.


Our logo apply our Post number and name, showing who we are and what we sand for.
With this magnanimous donation of several hundred dollars, we were able to move forward with our endeavor. The design artist was given the following facts:


1. Our number and it's reference to the 1776 era.


2. The Minute Man soldier with rifle, representing the citizen, the veteran soldier, always ready to defend our country and protect our freedoms.


3. That we are members of the American Legion.


4. That we are a Nevada Post, the State should be represented as well as Las Vegas.


5. The designer included in his first draft, the State motto, "Battle Born."


6. We wanted 13 stars, to represent the original States. No matter how hard he tried, the artist could not do this one without the start looking like dots. We had to settle for 11 stars including the one marking the
City of Las Vegas, for the representation. Since we began in the 9th month and have 11 stars - does that make us the first 9/11 Post?
