The San Dieguito American Legion was established in 1931 by World War I Veterans as a sanctuary and meeting place to help them deal with the horrors of that war. The San Dieguito (little San Diego) area spans from Carmel Valley through most of Carlsbad and inland to Black Mountain. For the last 90 years this facility has served veterans, family members and the community as a whole through charitable donations and volunteer efforts.

Today the building and attached structures are falling down and in dire need of repair; in fact, replacement is the best alternative. Hence, the Legion formed a “Operation Phoenix” committee.

This committee is charged with raising the funds to rebuild the Legion into a state of the art Veterans Resource meeting/community center to allow the Legion to continue the legacy of serving Veterans and their families as well as active duty personnel in the area.

You are welcome to review the currently proposed plans and drawings on our website.

Proceeds from "Rebuilding Campaign" will fund the rebuilding of our post building to enable us to continue and even improve support for our Active Duty, Veterans and their Families.
