American Legion Post 283's extraordinary donation

We are so grateful for the extraordinary donation of $400,000 to Veterans’ Gardens by the American Legion Post 283!

Post 283 in Pacific Palisades is a place where veterans can gather, and come together to serve the community through active involvement in programs such as Boys State/Girls State, American Legion Baseball, Valley Forge workshops, scholarships and more.

In 1919, The American Legion was founded on their four pillars of Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation, National Security, Americanism and Children and Youth. Each of these pillars encompasses a variety of programs that benefit our nation’s veterans, its service members, their families, the youth of America and ordinary citizens.

These programs make a difference in hundreds of thousands of lives each year. Their organization’s positions and programs are guided by resolutions passed by American Legion National Convention delegates, and by committee and commission members who represent 2.5 million wartime veterans and their families. These programs, and the men and women who take the time to perform them allow The American Legion to make a difference on the local, state and national levels.

At the park, a large flag and monument at its base will stand tall to honor and give appreciation to our community’s veterans.

Each of the five ‘garden rooms in the park’ honor one of the branches of the armed forces with a plaque in each of the ‘rooms.’

The Donor Wall will also pay tribute to our veterans and this significant donation to our community of Pacific Palisades.
