Anderson County Post #172


Since the charter of June 25, 1920, our American Legion Post has been welcoming VETERANS from all branches of our Armed Forces. Today, we continue to welcome all military personnel serving our country. Joining our Post enables you to continue serving your God, Country and Community. Our mission is to implement the goals, aspirations, dreams, peace and blessings for our country, friends and families embodied in our preamble below.

In 2020 the Clinton Post became the sole post for the entire Anderson County with the merger of the Oak Ridge and Lake City Posts; and in 2021 the post name was changed from the Clinton American Legion Post #172 to the Anderson County American Legion Post #172.

The Post Programs for Veteran, Youth, and Community Programs include: Boys State, Oratorical Contest, Youth Programs, Scholarships, JROTC Individual Awards and Recognition for Accomplishments, Operation Comfort Warriors, Troop and Family Support, Women Veterans, Veteran's Family Emergency Funds, and Buddy Check. The Legion Riders Chapter #172 also Provides Communities Service as: Funeral and Burial Escort; Veteran Emergency Support, and Family Assistance.
