Bicentennial Post 1976 was founded in 1975 when a small group of men decided to form a Post in Annandale, Va. The men enlisted the help of Mr. Harry Graul, who served as the District Vice Commander of the American Legion Organization. Mr. Graul signed up 25 members to form the Post and received a temporary charter in 1975. It wasn’t until 1976, that the Post received its official charter and the name, Bicentennial Post 1976. For several years, it was a post without a home. Meetings were held at a local restaurant, Tom Weston’s, as well as the Knights of Columbus. In 1982, the house that would later become the post home was leased to the members. Thanks to the generosity of Mr. Tom Weston, the post was able to open its doors for business. Mr. Weston guaranteed the lease, donated the bar, barstools, tables, and chairs. In 1984, when 24 members generously loaned money for an initial down payment, the small house was purchased. It was the very smallness of the post that allowed for a special camaraderie to develop amongst all members; Legionnaires, Ladies of the Auxiliary and the members of the Sons of the American Legion. All of these members contributed to an esprit of taking care of each other, advancing the ideals of The American Legion, and providing support to the local Annandale community. [today] After many years Post 1976 was finally able to expand, and in 1996 the membership approved a 1500 square foot expansion. Construction was completed in 1997. In 2006 the membership approved a second expansion adding 1350 square feet to the social quarters plus second floor offices and a conference room. Construction was completed in late 2007. The addition to the social quarters was proclaimed “The Tom Weston Memorial Hall.” Today The American Legion Bicentennial Post 1976 has over 729 members.
