Post 8 is located just blocks from the U.S. Capitol Building and receives many visitors from American Legion posts across the nation. Post 8 welcomes guests and members from other posts. Post 8 operates a small lounge for members and their guests. The Bar Manager on duty will ask to see membership cards. All guests and members from other posts must sign in. Current Active, Guard, and Reserve service members are welcome and typically signed in by one of any of the members in the lounge.
