Welcome to the American Legion Post 372 website. We are located at 1532 Martin Ave., Cherry Hill, NJ. The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization - 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 servicemembers and veterans.
The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization with great political influence perpetuated by its grass-roots involvement in the legislation process from local districts to Capitol Hill. Legionnaires’ sense of obligation to community, state and nation drives an honest advocacy for veterans in Washington.
