American Legion Post 197         Pawleys Island, SC 

About Us

Our Post is dedicated to serving our community by providing valuable services. The American Legion has been widely-recognized as one of the best Veterans' organizations. Our membership is growing at a steady pace.  We welcome all Veterans who want to help other Veterans, family members and our community. Please inquire today about how you can become a part of our growing membership.

                      Help us help others !!


Our priorities are supporting veterans and youth programs.  We have sponsored our Boys State participants and academic awards winners for 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.  They are all exemplary students and rapidly developing leaders.
And excellent Coastal Observer articles are provided on the "contact us" page, at the end of this web site. 
We sponsored  9 boys in 2017, and 9 in 2018. 

In addition, our Post supports the American Legion Oratorical Contest.  Our 2017 local winner also won the Quadrant/region and was a strong contender at State level. Our Post Commander, Glenn Hero, served as the State Department Oratorical Contest chairman for the 2018 contest.

Your donations and proactive support are needed and most truly appreciated by our Post members and by the youth and veterans who benefit from our programs.

We are appropriately proud of our Membership achievement awards.
