NC American Legion Post 146 is a non-smoking, non-drinking family-oriented Christian post dedicated to helping veterans succeed in life.
We are a small post and auxiliary that takes pride in helping our returning veterans, homeless veterans and veterans in the Salisbury VA hospital and the NC State Veterans Home. Our Legion family supplies needed comfort items to them all.
The regular monthly meeting for the Legion and the Auxiliary is held on the first Saturday of each month, except during July. A Hamburger/Hot Dog Fundraising event is held from 10:30 to 2PM followed by a joint meeting of the Legion and Auxiliary at 2:20 PM. Contact Tim Nason 704-637-3718 or Martha Corriher 704-798-3625 or attend a meeting to learn more about the benefits of becoming a Legionnaire.

Martha Corriher, the unit's Auxiliary President has also served as State President and has served national chairman for several of the national programs. The Junior Auxiliary program is one program the unit works closely with to teach community service and veteran rehab to those members.
We were proud when the Junior Program won one of 5 National awards in August 2012 at the national convention for their 'Homeless Not Hopeless' homeless veteran's awareness project. The Junior members built cardboard houses and camped out overnight to experience what it is to be homeless. They collected can foods, toiletry items, clean used clothing and other items and donated it to the homeless program at the Salisbury Veterans Hospital. This project generated items valued at over $19,000. Junior Auxiliary member Carson Delong is serving as Honorary National Junior Chaplain and Grace DeLong is currently the Honorary Junior Auxiliary Department President.
