POST MEMBER MEETINGS: We have post meetings each month. CONFIRM time and location by contacting the Commander.
We are frequently asked if we have a Post Home that is open daily to visit: we don't at this time. We gather together for our scheduled meetings and for ceremonies.
We recommend that you visit PERSHING HALL memorial building on 49, Rue Pierre Charron, 75008 PARIS. It is near the avenue des Champs - Elysees. It was our post home from the 1930s to 1991.
CEREMONIES: We conduct ceremonies at the different memorials around Paris and France throughout the year. Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about our ceremonial duties or to participate.
