Fall of 1930 five former servicemen meeting i an old house on Denny Johnson's Orange Grove on Lutz Lake Frn Roadin Lutz. On January 16, 1937 Post 108 received a Temporary Charter.was an informal community consisting of former World War I Veterans. The decision to organize an American Legion Post resultedin a Permant Charter on May 3, 1937 from the conclusion of these Veterans that the American Legion was the representative Veterans' organization in this country. That conclusion has been proven true as today the American Legion is the largest wartime Veterans' organization with nearly 13,000 American Legion Posts worldwide. Current national membership is over 2 million and combined with the American Legion Auxiliary and Sons of The American Legion, membership in what is known as The American Legion Family, exceeds 3 million who care about America, Veterans, their families and our nation's youth.
A Sons of the Legion for American Legion Post 108 is in the process to regester a Post 108 Squadron. The Legion has every reason to be proud of it's Sons of Legion unit, which gained statewide recognition because of it's programs of service.
MEMORIAL DAY has always been an outstanding occasion in this community. In addition to memorial events throughout the Lutz - Land O Lakes community, the goal of every Veteran to it's last man is to keep MEMORIAL DAY sacred to the memory of our war dead of all of the wars of the country; and all graves are decorated on this National Holiday.
ARMISTICE DAY, now called VETERANS' DAY, originally marked the end of fighting in World War I. It is an important holiday on the calendar of Legionnaires everywhere and in the hearts of all Veterans. Annually the Post sponsored the Armistice Day Parade. An important tradition was established when the Post led in the memorial exercises at 11 o'clock on the morning of November 11, marking the exact hour of the cessation of hostility on the war fronts.
Registration Of Graves
Since it's inception American Legion Post 108 has been a leader in this community in the area of graves registration; which has been incorporated by all the American Legion Posts in Pasco County. Grave Registration enables all interested parties to locate the site of the grave of each Veteran.
