731 N Clinton Street, Grand Ledge, Michigan

Grand Ledge, Post-48 "Home of the 3rd District"

                                                       Newly Elected 3rd District Officers, 2017-2018

Our District website was unveiled in July 2011 through the efforts of Jim Carlin, the 3rd District Commander at the time.  His vision and mine as your current District Commander is that it will be of great value to not only the District, but all our Posts. It will provide resource information on Posts, Auxiliary, Sons of the American Legion (SAL), and American Legion Riders. If a Post in our 3rd District has a website, we will include links to it in order for members to see what is going on in their area. Take a few minutes to check it out, and encourage a friend or relative who may be a veteran, to join a Post in their community.

District 3 is comprised of 24 active Posts in 5 counties in Southwest Michigan. They include; Post No. 15, Post No. 36, Post No. 42, Post No. 48, Post No. 52, Post No. 53, Post No. 54, Post No. 55, Post No. 79, Post No. 118,  Post No. 156, Post No. 157, Post No. 195, Post No. 196, Post No. 207, Post No. 222, Post No. 257, Post No. 259, Post No. 272, Post No. 280, Post No. 298, Post No. 360, Post No. 465, & Post No. 475.
