Yes, as a military veteran or member of a veteran's family, the doors to The American Legion Charles J. Fulton Post 382 are always open. I encourage you to explore the benefits of membership in The American Legion and the rewards of participating in the numerous programs developed and presented by our 200-plus member veterans organization in St. Clair.
Although times have changed since our active military service, our military experience has taught us that we still need and want to count on someone just like us; someone who really understands how we felt and how we may still feel. That's what Post 382 is all about - veterans reaching out to other veterans to make life just a little better.
I encourage you to review this entire Website for additional information about the Post, about affiliated veterans organizations, about governmental veteran benefit agencies, and for related programs and events.
So, come visit. I personally guarantee you'll be welcomed as a member or a guest.

More Dates We Need to Remember in September
Two Special Legion Dates to Remember
Two special anniversaries are recognized in the month of September for the members of The American Legion Charles J. Fulton Post 382. September 16 marks the 97th birthday of The American Legion, which was chartered by Congress in 1919. Two days later on September 18 Post 382 looks back to 1947 when it was formerly chartered by the Michigan Department.
These two days of recognition draws special attention to The American Legion as a “God and country” organization and offers a challenge to all members to “stoke the fires” of the Legion within the communities served. The foundation of the challenge presented can be found in the “Four Pillars” the Legion stands on and how each of them remains highly relevant today.
The “Four Pillars” are Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation, National Security, Americanism and Children & Youth. Each encompasses a variety of programs that benefit our nation’s veterans, members of its armed forces, their families, the youth of America and all citizens. The programs designed from these pillars allow The American Legion to make a difference throughout the country. It’s who we are and what we do.
The American Legion Post 382 was officially established in 1947 and proudly includes within its identification the name of Charles J. Fulton. He was born in Casco Township in 1894 and enlisted with Company C, 33rd Michigan Infantry in 1916. That Company merged with others to form the 125th Infantry. Sergeant Fulton’s company arrived in France in early 1918 joining the Allied Expeditionary Forces. He surrendered his life for his country on a battlefield in France on July 31, 1918. As St. Clair’s first resident to die in the Great War, it was befitting that when the veteran members of Post 382 was chartered his name would become a lasting part of its identification.
This year the Honorable William Cedar, Jr., Mayor of the City of St. Clair, is proclaiming September 16 as “American Legion Day” in recognition of the veteran organization’s contributions to the nation and to the community. As members of The American Legion it is so important for us to recognize we are a God and country organization. No matter where we are or what we do, we must always remember
U.S. Air Force Birthday (September 18) marks the founding of this branch of our Armed Forces in 1947. It was a momentous event that over six decades later has demonstrated the achievement of an air force second-to-none, yet the U.S. Air Force history an heritage extends much further back.
Constitution Day (September 17) is also referred to as Citizenship Day. It is a holiday honoring the date September 17, 1787 when 39 delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the United States Constitution.
