Charles Cowden Post 184
Pine Island, Minnesota
Since our charter in 1919, our American Legion Post has been welcoming VETERANS
from all branches of our Armed Forces.
Today, we continue to welcome all military personnel serving our country.

Joining our Post enables you to continue serving your God, Country and Community.

Our mission is to implement the goals, aspirations, dreams,
peace and blessings for our country, friends and families embodied in our preamble.


We accept United States Flags that are no longer serviceable
to insure they are disposed of properly and with honor.

for your continued support.
