Welcome to the web presence of the Gahanna, Ohio American Legion Post #797. One of the fastest growing Legion Posts in Ohio, and one of the few to work hand in hand with their counterpart organization, the Veterans of Foreign Wars. The twoPosts are co-located on a piece of land owned by VFW Post #4719, in a location which could soon be designated as a Veterans Memorial Park by the City. The Post is located directly across from the new Creekside City Center in Gahanna, a development that is quickly becoming well known for its annual Creekside Jazz and Blues Festival.


Previously, some post members thought about starting up a Riders Club, but that initiative has fallen through.  So, if anyone is still interested, you can contact the Post Commander, John George, who will direct you to a nearby post that does have a club with which you can participate.  Most, or all of the Legion Riders Clubs will accept riders from another post, so check it out.

The 2014 American Legion Post 797 membership drive is officially on and running.  We ended the year with 442 members, losing a few along the way to our TAPS page, and a few to moving away, but we still gained in membership, much better than many of the posts in the District.
