What Makes this Post Unique

For 100 years the veterans of Alexandria have served their community through the good works of the American Legion.  Prior to the formation of the American Legion a group of WWI veterans formed a veterans service organization known as the "Great War Veterans of America".  That group of veterans voted to join the Department of New York American Legion at its founding.  Post 904 was named after 1st Lt. John B. Lyman and his brother Gould Lyman founded the veterans service organization that later became The American Legion in Alexandria Bay.  The Post is located in the heart of the Thousand Islands and the beautiful Boldt Castle can be seen on Heart Island from the Post dining room.  Post 904 supports all the programs the American Legion supports.  We send several boys
