About Us

Eagle on flagThe American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation's largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans. We strive to serve the needs of Veterans of all wars, their widows, and dependent children. In general, our motto is Veterans serving Veterans and their families.

One of the seminal statements of the Legion's orientation and objectives, adopted in Saint Louis in 1919, is The preamble of the constitution which reads as follows:

"For God and Country we associate ourselves together for the following purposes:"

"To uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America; to maintain law and order; to foster and perpetuate a 100 Percent Americanism; to preserve the memories and incidents of our association in the Great Wars; to inculcate a sense of individual obligation to the community, state, and nation; to combat the autocracy of both the classes and the masses; to make right the master of might; to promote peace and good will on earth; to safeguard and transmit to prosperity the principles of justice, freedom, and democracy; to consecrate and sanctify our comradeship by devotion to mutual helpfulness." (See our Preamble page for further discussion and information regarding the preamble to the constitution).

soldier on flagThe Legion is active in developing and promoting legislative activities that establish or protect the rights of Veterans. As stated in our Preamble, we are dedicated to upholding and defending the Constitution of the United States of America and promoting a sense of individual obligation to the community, state, and nation. We consider it our responsibility to safeguard and transmit to posterity the principle of justice, freedom and democracy.

Our Post

Dinner during meeting Horry Post 111 (located in Conway SC) was founded in 1925 and has served Veterans in all branches of the United States' military from WW I, WW II, Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, and the more recent Gulf Wars. At present, we have approximately 106 members from the general Conway area. These Veterans have put their efforts toward serving the Conway area communities by providing area high school students the opportunity to play American Legion Baseball, to participate in an Oratorical Competition conducted annually, and to participate in the Palmetto Boys State and the Nathan Wolf Law Cadet Academy which together teach our young men about how our government works and about how Law and Order is handled in South Carolina. Additionally, Post 111 annually recognizes JROTC students from area high schools who excel in Academics and Military Knowledge and Skills. See our Original Charter Members of Post 111 here.

Flags along city streetThe Post has participated in countless events within the community, helping out whenever and wherever they have the opportunity. Members place American Flags on main thoroughfares in Conway at appropriate holidays throughout the year, and they hold a flag retirement ceremony annually, usually on Flag Day, June 14th. Post 111, in conjunction with Conway National Bank, offers collection points for American Flags and South Carolina Flags which need to be replaced and retired.

Meeting for dinnerAfter nearly 41 years of not having its own Post home, Post 111 has recently (June of 2016) purchased its own property located at 3003 Hwy 701 N., Conway, SC 29526. We have renovated the buildings and are now enjoying holding our meetings and other activities in our own Post Home. Come check us out and plan to participate in our ever growing list of activities.
