Commander Michael O’Callaghan


I would like to welcome everyone to Post 8 here in Winter Haven FL.  I am so proud to say that I am currently starting  my 4th  term as the commander of this great post.  As we continue to make improvements and look to the future of our post I want to invite all honorably discharged veterans to come and join us and enjoy the many benefits of being a member of “The American Legion” one of the best veteran’s organizations in the USA.  Each year we strive to support not only our local community but some events on the National level.  Our success depends on the continued support and cooperation of our members and our amazing local community.  This year we hope to increase not only our membership but our support to our veterans. I would like to thank everyone who has been working so hard to keep our Post the best Post in Florida.  We have more planned projects for 2018.  Anyone interested in getting involved, please contact the office. So once again I welcome you not only to our post but our website.

For God and Country
