American Legion Post 44 Celebrates Independence Day! 

By Thomas Smith, Post 44 Historian 

The American Legion Post 44 celebrated the 2024 Fourth of July with a “best in memory” record turn-out. 

John Stamatakis provided the karaoke entertainment with our remarkable volunteer bartenders (Michele, Bree, Patrick, & Vinni) making sure the drink and food orders continued to flow.  For a small donation, they also offered a festively prepared Jello shot that looked and tasted like a wonderful dessert.  Buyer beware!      

United Catering (our Post 44 food service provider) also offered a special menu for the occasion that was second to none.  Where else can you get a Maine lobster roll on the 4th?       

As only Scottsdale residents will do, members and guests braved the 110-degree Arizona heat to sing their favorite songs and enjoy listening to others do the same.  The genre for the evening included country, rock, pop and alternative.    

American Legion Post 44 is known for our awesome location (old town), comradery, community service, and the financial support we provide to greater Phoenix area veterans.  

American legion Post 44 is the… “Best Damn Post in the West!”  “It’s not a joke!”  Interested in becoming a member… stop by the Post 44 legion office to inquire.
