Welcome to American Legion Post 111 of Conway
Our Post Home is still closed but our legionnaires are still at work. This week we put flags out around our fine city and now we, from all of American Legion Post 111, would like to wish all of you a Happy 4th of July.

Because of the COVID-19 Virus and guidelines published by the government, your Executive Committee has suspended All Post 111 activities until at least the end of June 2020. This includes Bingo, ALL meetings, and the Canteen. We will re-evaluate and publish additional information at that time. Please see the Commander’s letter below.
Our address is 3003 Hwy 701 North, Conway, SC 29526 and our phone number is (843) 365-5669.

VA Claims Assistance
Post 111’s Service Officer, Nick Cosentino, is at the Post on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 8 am to 10 am to aid Veterans and Members with their VA claims. Plan on being early and you must sign in. Bring as much information as possible to support your claim. You may make an appointment with Nick by calling the office at (843) 359-5669.
Nick was recently recognized by the Horry County Police Department for his service as a volunteer. For the past seven years Nick has volunteered five days a week at the North Precinct. Nick exemplifies what it means to be a volunteer.
What is Americanism
One of American Legion Post 111’s primary goals is to teach Americanism to the young Americans in the Conway SC area. As such we promote youth programs such as American Legion baseball, Palmetto Boys State, an annual Oratorical Competition, and the Nathan Wolf Law Cadet Academy.
Americanism is the essential combination of Freedom, Justice, Individual Rights, and Responsibilities that define us and what we stand for. Americanism is also Pride in Country, expressed without reservation, and the duty Legionnaires have in imparting patriotic values to new generations.
