Thanks for stopping in to look at our website. Take the time and look through all our pages. Here you can all find out about our Post and membership.

 The American Legion is the largest Veterans Service Organization. We are one of the twelve Posts that are in Staten Island, New York.

​We are firmly committed to our mission of serving the Veteran community and their families, and we strive to accomplish this is with the help of our ever-growing membership who volunteer their time so generously on the many projects and activities that makes us the great Post that we are. 

 Come visit us and sit it on a meeting. You might meet some you in the past but for sure you will some new ones.

Dear Legionnaires and fellow Veterans,

On behalf of the American Legion Post 316, I would like to welcome you to our Post website. Although we are not the largest Post in New York, we are among the very active ones and take pride in the role we play in the Staten Island community. As with all volunteer organizations, our members are the backbone of our Post and so we are always looking for new people to join us and give a helping hand. The work is rewarding and the sense of family is strong and genuine. Besides Post members, we also have support from the members of our Sons of the American Legion Squadron

We work with many organizations in our Veterans’ communities to provide help for many people.

We are proud to sponsor Legion programs, including the American Legion Boy’s and Girl’s State and knowledge of Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation programs, including what we are calling Operation to our First Responders.

One again, welcome to our Post; I sincerely hope that we will meet in person at the Post or at a Post event. If you are in the area, please stop by and say hello; we are always looking to make new friends. If you are a member and have not been to a Post meeting in a while stop in and see what is new. I promise either way you will be delighted and happy.

For additional information you can contact me Commander Carmine Vacirca at cjc1618@aol.com or our Post Adjutant Lester Modelowitz at KGPost316@gmail.com or our membership chairman and Vice Commander Allen Palazzo at alpalazzo@verizon.net.

See you at a Post function!

 For God and Country,

Commander: Carmine Vacirca
