We’re also a private club with the biggest heart in Picayune.

You served your country in a time of war. You probably learned a few things about yourself, about being a part of something bigger. As a veteran, your life of service has just begun. Help your community, your country, and your fellow vets, and have a good time doing it with people who get you.

Find out how joining the American Legion and McSween-Johnston Post 73 helps veterans and others while enriching your life.

Centennial-Logo American Legion McSween-Johnston Post 73

The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation, and volunteerism.

The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.  Wartime veterans who have served honorably during the eligibility periods as determined by Congress may apply for membership.  If your parent or spouse served during wartime, you may qualify for membership in the Sons of the American Legion or the American Legion Auxiliary.
