We welcome you to our American Legion Post home on the Web and to our community.  It is our hope that this website serves to provide information to our community and to our members.  We invite your comments and suggestions for improvement of this site and your ideas on how we can continue to serve our community, state and nation.  We are Veterans...still serving America! 

American Legion Post 342
is a host of VFW Post 131 at 5721 Johanna Road here in Lincoln.  We have a good working relationship with the VFW and they have graciously allowed us to use the facilities as if they were ours.  The club is open on the first and third Fridays of the month, the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month and the second and fourth Sunday mornings for brunch.  Please check the About Us page for Club information and the Events Calendar page for events.

Post 342 has a general meeting the first Thursday night of the month, except for July and December.  We discuss issues concerning membership, Children and Youth program and Veterans issues.  We try to conduct fund raising events once a month to fun our programs.

The American Legion
The American Legion is the largest veteran's organization in the world, with a membership of more than 2.8 million wartime veterans in the United States, District of Columbia and four foreign countries.  Members of The American Legion are honorably discharged men and women who served their country on active duty in the Armed Forces of the United States during World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Lebanon, Grenada, Panama and Persian Gulf Wars and conflicts.  Founded and organized in 1919, The American Legion has touched virtually every facet of American life, fulfilling its main objective of service to the community, state and nation.

Last year, The American Legion joined with the Children's Miracle Network to raise nearly $4 million dollars for CMN.  Other needy children and families received more than $11 million in cash and gifts from American Legion Posts.  Legion Posts provided nearly $5 million in emergency aid to veterans last year.  Deserving high school students were awarded $5.3 million in college scholarships.  Almost $71 million was spent by The American Legion and its affiliated organizations for the benefit of children and youth last year.

Local charity campaigns received over $16 million in donations from local American Legion Posts.  Legionnaires across the country donate more than a million hours each year in the Veteran's Administration "Voluntary Service Program," helping patients in VA Medical Facilities.  Legion members donated over 3 million hours of service to their communities.
  The American Legion has also, for many years, conducted programs that have been designed to benefit the youth of our nation.  Some of these programs include:
High School Oratorical Contest American Legion Baseball American Legion Boys State/Nation
American Education Week Eagle Scout Scholarships Flag Education
Scholarship Information Booklets Substance Abuse Prevention Junior Shooting Sports Program
Children's Miracle Network American Legion Child Welfare Foundation Missing Children
Temporary Financial Assistance Teen Suicide Prevention National Emergency Fund
