Join Fellow Women Veterans

Established in 1932

We are the only all-women veterans American Legion Post in the state of California.  We are located in Sunny San Diego and meet centrally at the Veterans War Memorial near the San Diego Zoo.

Women Veterans

We are composed of women veterans, so we know what it's like to balance a career and a family from the unique perspective of … being a woman veteran. We welcome military women on active duty, honorably discharged, and veteran status. 


We provide much-needed donations to the VA Hospital, predominantly for women veterans but also supporting military men and children.

   Our service programs support local school supplies & backpacks, scholarship awards, and the Boys State Program.
