 FAYETTEVILLE, AR
The local Fayetteville’s American Legion Post 27 needs your help! Any donation will be much appreciated and will be used effectively to better our community. Please feel free to share with everyone.

American Legion members have a goal to increase their involvement in the community and selectively provide programs to veterans. With the Northwest Arkansas area having over 60,000 veterans, Post 27 wants to be a place to build a social community of all veterans focused on service to each other and the community in which they live.

WE CAN USE YOUR HELP!!

Working with the University of Arkansas Enactus team, the Post 27 Board of Directors are looking to transform their dated facility into a suitable family friendly environment. Your donation would go towards Phase 1 of our project which will include:
Repair a broken door and create the Legion’s new entry/memorabilia room.
Paint (inside and outside)
Clean and Paint the Exterior
Renew and Beautify Landscaping
New Flooring
New Lighting

Next phases of improvements to the facilities will be include a new roof, new HVAC units, and installing showers.


Read More About Post 27:
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 wartime veteran’s 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. Hundreds of local American Legion programs and activities strengthen the nation one community at a time.
The Shelton Tucker Craft American Legion Post 27 located in Fayetteville, AR was organized and chartered July 31, 1919 in honor of Martin Lynn Shelton who was killed in France on May 28, 1918 while trying to carry a wounded comrade to safety. Since that time the post has added the memorial titles honoring William Marion Tucker, USMC, killed in action on December 8, 1941 at Wake Island, and Medal of Honor recipient Clarence B. Craft who while serving as a private first class in Company G, 382nd Infantry, single handedly attacked the Japanese held “Hen Hill” on Okinawa using grenades to chase the defenders into a cave which he destroyed with explosive devices.
Post 27 holds a long and distinguished history of service to the Northwest Arkansas Community. Our Post conducts numerous programs that serve the community as a whole, in addition to their service to fellow veterans and their families. The Shelton Tucker Craft American Legion Post 27 supports more children to attend Boy’s and Girl’s state each year than any other post and most school districts. Their mission is to educate the youth of America in our political systems and these amazing veterans take every opportunity to make certain that the children understand the liberties they enjoy come at a cost.
