The American Legion is built on a promise from men and women who swore with their lives to defend and protect the United States through military service. The promise begins at enlistment, grows through training and continues after discharge, as veterans in service to community, state and nation. In times of crisis, The American Legion steps into the turmoil and fights to provide needed assistance for others. Veterans in need of advocates to help them achieve meaningful careers, educations, health-care services, friends and stable homes are supported every day, free of charge, by The American Legion. Active-duty, National Guard and Reserve personnel have dedicated supporters in The American Legion. A strong and well-resourced national defense is, and has always been, a central purpose of the organization. As former troops, Legionnaires understand the importance of home-front support. Legionnaires constantly remind communities that freedom and prosperity come with a price. In the American Legion, there is no rank or prejudice, only purpose. And the purpose of veterans in The American Legion is to strengthen the United States of America through programs, services, compassion and actions that have proven vital, timeless and life-changing for over a century.
Founded in 1919, The American Legion Auxiliary has nearly 1 million members from all walks of life. The Auxiliary administers hundreds of volunteer programs, gives tens of thousands of hours to its communities and to veterans, and raises millions of dollars to support its own programs, as well as other worthwhile charities familiar to Americans. It is all accomplished with volunteers.
While originally organized to assist The American Legion, the Auxiliary has achieved its own unique identity while working side-by-side with the veterans who belong to The American Legion. Like the Legion, the Auxiliary’s interests have broadened to encompass the entire community.
The American Legion Auxiliary is made up of the male and female spouses, grandmothers, mothers, sisters, and direct and adopted female descendants of members of The American Legion. Through its nearly 10,500 units located in every state and some foreign countries, the Auxiliary embodies the spirit of America that has prevailed through war and peace. Along with The American Legion, it solidly stands behind America and its ideals.
Our Post 95 Auxiliary Unit is always ready to welcome new members! 
Come be a part of something more, we would love to have you!

Celebrating The American Legion Auxiliary

Founded in 1932, the Sons of The American Legion exists to honor the service and sacrifice of Legionnaires. SAL members include males of all ages whose parents or grandparents served in the U.S. military and were eligible for American Legion membership. Members of The American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary and Sons of The American Legion comprise the Legion Family, which has a combined membership of nearly 3 million. Nationally, the SAL has raised more than $8 million for The American Legion Child Welfare Foundation, volunteered over 500,000 hours at veterans' hospitals and raised over $1,000,000 for VA hospitals and VA homes.

Our Post 95 Sons preserve this heritage, honor this commitment and proudly represent themselves in service to the community!

in 1993, an idea was shared to start a motorcycle enthusiasts association within the organization and offer an environment where Legion family members could come together to share a common love for motorcycles. Currently, over 110,000 American Legion Riders meet in over 2,000 chapters in every domestic department and in at least three foreign countries.
True to the Legion's grassroots tradition, each chapter manages its programs at the post level, where the best ideas are born.

Our Post 95 Riders proudly serve our community, riding with honor, dignity, and commitment!

With the sounds of synchronized steps and a bugler playing Taps, in sorrow, and in celebration, an Honor Guard presentation can stir up deep emotions. The Honor Guard symbolizes our freedoms and the sacrifices from the men and women who defend our country by presenting funerary colors for our nation's veterans.

The Honor Guard also hosts flag retirement ceremonies, participates in events that celebrate our nation’s colors and fulfills the American Legion’s Preamble “to foster and perpetuate a one hundred percent Americanism.”

Featured here, our Sam Houston Post 95 Honor Guard honored our National Flag Day on June 14 by retiring and replacing our post flag! Then, on August 26, they honored those 13 men and women lost in Kabul Afghanistan. Our Honor Guard regularly presents arms and ceremonial folds flags for local memorial services and supports many other local activities in coordination with the VFW and H.E.A.R.T.S. museum.

On 11/10/23, our Honor Guard posted colors for Congressman Sessions speech at the complex storm shelter, tor the USMC birthday luncheon. They were named and thanked personally, one of the many major recognitions our honor guard receives throughout each year.

PTSD Foundation of America | Providing Hope and Healing for the Unseen Wounds of War,

The PTSD Foundation also sponsors Camp HOPE America, the first evidence-based camping and mentoring program in the United States to focus on children and teens exposed to domestic violence. Our mission is to give youth a brighter future by creating pathways to hope and healing. What makes Camp HOPE America special is the trauma-informed lens the program was developed from. At Camp HOPE America, we praise campers for the person that they are becoming; seeing their character for who they are and not what they have accomplished. From the beginning, the goal has been to create a year-round program where youth can feel safe, seen, heard, encouraged, and cared for. Camp HOPE America is composed of a week of camp, supported by year-round activities.
