Saugerties American Legion Post 72 is called Lamouree-Hackett, and is located between John and Partition Streets. (The front of the building faces John Street and there is a parking lot and park accessible from the Partition Street side.)
The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization. Focusing on service to veterans, servicemembers and communities, the Legion evolved from a group of war-weary veterans of World War I into one of the most influential nonprofit groups in the United States. Membership swiftly grew to over 1 million, and local posts sprang up across the country. Today, membership stands at over 2.4 million in 14,000 posts worldwide. The posts are organized into 55 departments: one each for the 50 states, along with the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, France, Mexico and the Philippines.
The monthly meeting of Post 72 are 7:00pm to completion time of business on the 3rd Thursday of the every month with the exceptions of July and August
