Kenneth H. Nash DC Post No. 8




The Kenneth H. Nash Post 8 is a local post of the American Legion, located on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. The post received its charter on January 18, 1922. It is a non-profit organization that provides a center of community for its members, promotes volunteerism and holds fundraising drives to support veterans. Post 8 houses the local post for veteran members of the American Legion, Sons of the American Legion Squadron 8 and the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 8. Post 8 has a members’ lounge, event hall, a small kitchen and meeting space.




The American Legion is committed to supporting our fellow service members and veterans, sponsoring youth programs in our communities and promoting the patriotism and honor that is vital to our nation’s future.  Post 8 members can be proud of their accomplishments that further the mission of service.



The American Legion states it best when it says, “The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteerism. The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.”
