The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest war- and peace-time 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 service members and veterans.
Price Post 3 received its Charter on July 19, 1919, and has been active in and supporting the community and its veterans since. Price Post 3 now includes all areas of Carbon County, UT, from Scofield to Helper, East Carbon and Sunnyside, Wellington and all areas in between and Green River and eastern Emery County. Price Post 3 is one of the Posts within the American Legion Department of Utah’s District 5 which includes American Legion Posts of southeast Utah: Blanding, Emery, Ferron, Huntington, Moab, Orangeville, and Price.
Price Post 3 recently updated its Constitution and By-Laws to reflect the changes Congress passed in the LEGION ACT; primarily opening membership to all veterans who have served at least one day of Active Duty on or since December 7th, 1941.
Price Post 3 is proud to support American Legion Baseball teams in Helper and Price, Utah.
