Welcome to American Legion Post 111 of Conway
Our Post Home is still closed (and will be closed until further notice) but our legionnaires are still at work. For Independence Day, they put flags around our fine city. Also, most of our Military Service bands and choruses performed works using technology that allowed them to perform while at their homes, or socially distant. Three performances that you might like to view are shown below. Click on their links to view the videos.
Performance from the United States Navy Band here.
Performance of Home Free’s – ‘God Bless the USA‘ featuring Lee Greenwood and the United States Air Force Band
And not wanting to leave anybody out, view an awe-inspiring performance from the West Point band and Glee Club

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.
