Our Post 277 Accredited American Legion service officer is specially trained to provide expert assistance, free of charge, to veterans and their families. While the majority of a service officer’s work involves application for VA disability benefits, these compassionate professionals also provide information, referrals and resources on education, employment and business, death benefits and other important topics.

Welcome to our Post! We have a great group of Legion, Auxiliary, Sons of the American Legion and of course our American Legion Riders. We invite you to stop by for a visit and why not Join the Legion or one of its groups. We help area veterans and families. We are located in Boca Raton. Please see the Map.


We are in the "Shops at University" in the back of the Plaza. Look for the American Flag Flying High! It's out our front door.
