Welcome to American Legion Post 71

Thank you for taking the time to visit the website for the American Legion Post 71, in Pewaukee. We are an organization dedicated to serving veterans, their families, and their communities. The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a Patriotic veterans organization.  Pewaukee Post 71 was constructed in 1929 and was the first building in the country to be built as an American Legion clubhouse. The bar was added in 1949.  Our Veterans of All Wars Memorial (left) was dedicated on May 25th, 2013 and again re-dedicated on May 29th, 2016.   Our post consists of the American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary, and Sons of the American Legion. Currently, we do not have a Legion Riders affiliate club at our post. Please feel free to send an email to for additional information.  If you are interested in joining our post, our auxiliary, or our Sons of the American Legion affiliate, please complete the appropriate membership form.
