Big Bend American Legion Post #79 is one of the larger membership and most active posts in west Texas and a proud member of the 16th District. As our preamble to the Constitution states we are committed to the Community, State and Nation.
In the Community we support our veterans in need through various means both direct and indirect, we also support the Boy Scouts of America Troop 41 which meet monthly at the post, and through the Boys State Program. At the State level we are proud to support the initiatives of the Department of Texas, particularly their scholarship program.
We also have several officers who serve at the District Level and are involved in both State and National American Legion committees and commissions. Our success in our ability to support all we do depends largely on our members.
Post #79 has a very successful Post Home that offers not only a member’s lounge, but a bar open to the public. We feature many entertainment events and host V Sweep games . We have a successful food service program which host dinners for several different events. We also have rooms available for private parties and our staff stands ready to serve your every need.
