About Us

Who We Are

The American Legion Post 166 was established in Los Banos in 1920 and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2487 was established in 1932. 

In most parts of the country, the American Legion and VFW function separately and rarely join together for activities. In Los Banos, the two organizations have joined together in a combined effort to serve Veterans and the local community.


We meet the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 am.  We have quarterly dinner meetings.  Meetings are held at the Veterans Memorial Hall, 615 E Street, Los Banos, CA.
