St. Louis Service Women's Post 404 was the second all women American Legion post in Missouri. The first, Missouri Women's Memorial Post 108, was comprised of World War I Army nurses. Since Post 108 already existed, the Post 404 charter members decided they wanted a name that would encompass all women veterans. Their choice of St. Louis Service Women's acknowledged the location of the post, all branches of military service and all ranks of women.
The most notable of notable members are our charter members. Their legacy lives on today in the programs and operations of Post 404. Through the years we have all been touched by the ideals of our predecessor's belief in the American Legion, the security of our country, and the welfare of our children and youth.
What Makes this Post Unique
Post 404 is the largest American Legion post in the City of St. Louis. As an all female post we focus on the welfare of fellow women veterans while supporting the programs of The American Legion. We have a Military Funeral Honors team that supports military funerals in Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery as well as surrounding private cemeteries. We have a Color Guard that has posted the colors and participated in concerts conducted by military bands and private groups throughout the St. Louis area. Post 404 partners with the local VA Women's Clinic to support any female veterans who need financial assistance or just someone to lend an ear. We attend most events focusing on veterans and always look to recruit eligible veterans into the American Legion. Post 404 is a key member of the Stand Up for Women Veterans which focuses on homeless and at risk women veterans. We continue to grow and are a visible symbol of The American Legion and its ideals.
