On March 19, 1935, thirty veterans of WW I signed a charter creating American Legion Carroll
Post 143. Since it's creation, the Post has been an active contributor to the community and to its
veterans and their families.

A memorial bench has been placed in honor of the original charter members in the Carroll
County Veterans Memorial Park.

The Post Family consists of Legionnaires, Sons of the American Legion, and the American
Legion Auxiliary. Collectively we strive to adhere to the programs and services outlined in the
Legion's "Four Pillars":

Pillar I - Veterans Affairs
Pillar II - National Security
Pillar III - Americanism
Pillar IV - Children & Youth
