Welcome Home!

American Legion Battlefields Post 144 has served veterans, their families, and the community of Highland Springs, Virginia for over 76 years.

The American Legion chartered our Post on January 27, 1934. That same year, local veterans of World War I built and dedicated our first Post Home on Mapleleaf Avenue in Highland Springs. In 1967, we moved to our current location on Old Hanover Road. Along with Legion Auxiliary Unit 144, American Legion Riders 144, and the Sons of the American Legion, we welcome all!

The Legionnaires of Battlefields Post 144 in Highland Springs, Virginia, look forward to serving and working with you.

A Rich Tradition

The American Legion and Battlefields Post 144 serve our veterans, their families, their community, and our nation. The legacy of the American Legion includes, for example, the GI Bill of Rights and its successors. The United States was, and continues to be, transformed by the millions of veterans who have been able to obtain higher education through the GI Bill. The Legionnaires of Battlefields Post 144 are committed to the principles of the American Legion.
