News release

Third District Adjutant, Steve North, Installed Middleton/Star Post 39’s officers. The officers for the 2022-23 year are: Commander Marv West, 1st Vice Commander C. M. ‘Mike’ Carpenter, 2nd Vice Commander Carlos Fleetwood, Chaplain Tom Penry, Historian Doug Clark and Sergeant At Arms Ron Honea.
Two years ago, congress adjusted the dates for membership in the American Legion to include all dates from December 7 1941. Prior to that, there were designated periods which left blank spots that many veterans could not join. Now they can become members if they served anytime since December 7, 1941. Dues are $45.00 per year.

Another change that occurred shortly after the above change: The American Legion Auxiliary changed their qualifications for membership from wife of a veteran to spouse of a veteran. Now a Legion member’s spouse or daughters can join the Auxiliary. Dues are $35.00 or $5.00 for daughters under 18. (Sons and grandsons can join the Sons of The American Legion. Dues are $15.00 per year.)

The American Legion exists to provide aid to all veterans,  their families, and the community. Our biggest project is our Honor Guard which provides funeral honors for veterans in the Treasure Valley. It also leads many of the parades, especially in Middleton and Star, as well as Posting the Colors for many organization’s meetings. We are always looking for new members.  We also support three Legion Baseball teams.

Meeting times are at 7:00PM on the last Monday of the month with dinner served at 6:00PM.

The Post Office at the Star Fire Station is only open by appointment at 208-713-6101
