On Mar 7, 2022 American Legion Post 39 moved from Middleton to Star, ID. The Veteran’s Organization was previously housed in an old building in Middleton that no longer met code requirements.
Marv West, Post 39 Commander was given the opportunity to use the Star Fire Department as a facility to meet on a monthly basis. “We are planning on using their training room for meetings. It is a state of the art facility that has multi-media capabilities to do zoom meetings, etc. It has built in microphones for audio as well as video capabilities. We also appreciate that we have been given an office of our own inside the facility,” Marv said.
A huge Thank You goes out to the City of of Star and Fire Department Station 51 for this opportunity. We look forward to see our family grow by moving closer to Star
Post 39 is in the process of changing their name to American Legion Middleton/Star Post 39.
The American Legion Family consists of Posts for Veterans, an Auxiliary Unit for their spouses and daughters, and a Sons of the American Legion squadron for their sons and grandsons. There is also a chapter of the American Legion Riders of motorcyclists that are members of one of the other family groups in the Treasure Valley. Unit 39 and Squadron 39 have been largely inactive due to the pandemic. “With the lightening of the restrictions, we can become more active.” said Squadron Commander Bruce Irving.
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 also support two Legion Baseball teams. We are always looking for new members.
Meeting times are at 7:00PM on the last Monday of the month with dinner served at 6:00PM.
Veterans and their families are welcome to enjoy a cup of coffee, relax, get help with resolving your difficulties or getting your benefits, or conversation. The Post Office is open usually Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10:00 AM till @:00 PM unless other activity interferes, or by appointment at 208-713-6101
