Post 264
Department of California - Lincoln, California   
The American Legion was originally chartered in 1919 as a patriotic, wartime, veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. The James E. Fowler Post #264 was chartered in May 1921 to recognize local veterans. The Post is named in honor of a Lincoln area businessman and farmer, James E. Fowler, who lost his life in France during World War I. Today, the Post works within the community helping veterans, and rendering students with basic scholarships who demonstrate outstanding civic awareness and honor the American spirit. Our Post stands ready to assist any and all veterans in need.


A Letter from the Commander
On behalf of the American Legion, James E. Fowler, Post 264, I would like to extend an open invitation to all military veterans to join us in servicing our community. Post 264 is made up of dedicated veterans from all branches, wars and conflicts, who continue to serve this great nation with a desire to help our local veterans, their families and our youth.

Our Post is expanding and growing to meet the needs of our community. We recently started a chapter of the Legion Riders and are currently exploring the possibility of adding a Sons of the American Legion Squadron to the Post in the near future.

During the past year, our members participated in numerous community activities aimed at increasing our presence within the Lincoln area. We are reaching out to our youth by sponsoring the Lincoln High School Trap Shooting team, as well as being active in our sponsorship of our Boys State candidates and our high school citizenship awards.

Post members and Legion Riders held our first Armed Forces Day event, and continued our tradition of honoring our fallen Veterans on Memorial Day. Both groups participated in holding ceremonies at the four Lincoln cemeteries, followed by lunch at the Veterans Hall. Our annual Trap Shoot event is always a big hit. These are just a few of the many activities held throughout the year.

While the activities are fun, it is important to keep in mind the funds raised go toward supporting the needs of our veterans, their families and our youth.

So please stop by, check us out. I look forward to seeing you soon.

Jim Beswick, Commander, Post 264
