Located in Lanark Village, Florida and proudly welcoming honored veterans and our community.
Established in 1953, The American Legion Post 82, in Lanark Village, Carrabelle, Florida, has been the home and heart for local veterans and their families for nearly seven decades.
Post 82 is named in dedication to Camp Gordon Johnston, a local Army training facility opened from 1942-1946. Spanning 165,000 acres of forest and beach, the camp began as the Army’s Amphibious Training Center, and later transitioned to a Special Forces Training Center. At the end of World War II, its purpose shifted to serving as a Separation Center for personnel of all services who lived in the Southeast region.
Today, American Legion Post 82 is a keystone in the community. Open 7 days a week, it is an inviting place to grab a bite to eat, relax with a drink, and make some new friends. Of course, it also serves as a headquarters for Legionnaires, the American Legion Auxiliary, the Sons of the American Legion, and the American Legion Riders. Get involved, give back to our venerable veterans, or find support and resources.
