Welcome to American Legion Westhampton Post 84! American Legion Post 84 was chartered in August 1941, just months before the attack on Pearl Harbor. It counts among its members past and present men and women who have served during wartime in combat and support roles, stateside and overseas in all branches of the armed forces.
We meet monthly, except for July and August, usually on the third Tuesday at 7;30pm. Currently those roughly 90 minute meetings are held at River Road Church, Baptist at 8000 River Road, Henrico, VA 23229.
