  • COMMANDER’S MESSAGE by Don Schilling

    YEAR IN REVIEW: As I look back on my first seven months as commander of Hollywood Post 43, it's been and fun and rewarding time.  In June, myself and several other Post members promoted patriotism and flag etiquette throughout Southern California on KTLA Channel 5 TV as part of their 'Flag Day' Week coverage. On the 4th of July, the Post had a star spangled banner celebration at the Starlight Bowl in Burbank. Then in August, the 95th Anniversary of Post's charter was celebrated in grand fashion at Big Wang's in Hollywood. In September there was our first ever 9-11 Remembrance Breakfast. In October, I was privileged to attend the week-long National American Legion College in Indianapolis. In November, a Tribute to Bob Hope USO type show highlighted our Veteran's Day Celebration. Jon Endow's "Legionnaires" photo exhibit and reception at Los Angeles City Hall was also held that month.  In December; myself, Post 43 members Jimmy Weldon and Dov Cohen went out to the women's prison in Chino. There we participated in the installation of officers of first ever "Veterans in Prison" chapter here in Southern California. Like I said, it's been a fun and rewarding time. Now it's onward and upward through June 2015!!!

    California Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Major General Peter J. Gravett, USA (Retired) along with Post member Jimmy Weldon at the Women's Prison in Chino, CA following installation of officers at Veterans in Prison chapter #1.  The handmade comforters and pillows were thank you gifts from the women.

History of the American Legion

Hall Rentals

Hall has 55 ft ceiling!The Hollywood American Legion Hall is a wonderful mid-size venue, with classic art deco architecture mixed with an historic military motif. The stage in the hall is small and intimate and the general admission set up allows you to be as close as you want to the action. This is a great venue to see your favorite artists up close and personal. The Hall has a rich heritage as an American Legion Post, but also has been a favorite haunt of local artists and politicians. Humphrey Bogart was often seen (and heard!) in the basement bar, and many films and television commercials are filmed here. The small and intimate atmosphere of this venue makes this a great place to enjoy a show. There is a collection of military memorabilia to peruse while you enjoy a drink in the foyer, and don't forget to slip downstairs to the bar for a roaring 20's style club. Learn More...
