The American Legion is the world’s largest veterans organization, made up of men and women who have served in the U.S. military during an official period of conflict. Through dedicated volunteers, we focus on veteran’s rehabilitation, patriotism, child welfare, and national security.
The American Legion Cecil Cox Post 147, based in Clovis, California, was originally named after the first Clovis serviceman to be killed during the war. The Clovis post was chartered March 3, 1921. Cecil Cox Post 147 sponsors the California Boy’s State, Youth Environmental Leadership Conference, Boy Scouts of America, American Legion Baseball, Central California Veterans Home, Operation Comfort warrior, Fresno Veterans Hospital, Golden Age Games and more.
Cecil Cox Post 147 also honors Memorial Day by co-sponsoring a memorial service with the Veterans of Foreign Wars at the Clovis cemetery on Villa Ave.
