Alexander Hamilton Post 448 of the American Legion is the only post whose membership is predominantly Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered honorably discharged veterans who have successfully served in the United States Armed Forces during a period when our nation was at war. Organized in 1984, we are recognized locally, statewide and nationally for our activism pertaining to the welfare of all veterans and, especially, our efforts to end the present homophobic discrimination of the United States Military.

If you are an eligible veteran we urge you to join Alexander Hamilton Post 448. Our dues are $35.00 annually. We meet on the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM in Room 202 of the San Francisco Veterans War Memorial Building at 401 Van Ness Avenue. If you are not local, your membership would support our efforts. If you are presently a Legionnaire, you could transfer your membership to our post with no loss of privileges, but you would augment our numbers and aid our cause.

The Alexander Hamilton Post is a longtime supporter of the San Francisco Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Freedom Band. The entire band consists of individuals that are either members of the Alexander Hamilton Veterans Association or are War Veterans and members of the Post.

If you are not eligible for American Legion membership you can join our support group - The Alexander Hamilton Veterans Association. Members of the Association share in all activities of the post, but cannot hold office in the post or vote. Association dues are $20.00 annually.

If you are the son of a veteran of an American Conflict from the Revolutionary War to the Desert Storm conflict (Persian Gulf), you are eligible to join the Squadron which is also known as Sons of the American Legion (S.A.L.). The veteran could be your father, mother, aunt, uncle or Grandfather. Squadron dues are $20.00 annually.
