American Legion Post 1799's annual program, as reflected in our Post Calendar, is designed to serve our community and America's military veterans.  Here are some highlights:

  • Assistance to Local Veterans' Families.  Provide guidance for military veterans and their spouses concerning Department of Veterans Affairs benefits.  We try to streamline the the application process through experience.
  • Boys/Girls State Program.  This is an exceptional experience and education for our high school students.  Post 1799 conducted interviews and selection for candidates to attend the state-level event.  Contact Post Boys/Girls State Chairman Irwin Lazar at [email protected] for details.
  • Haymarket Day.  Annually, our Post participated in this community event with a booth and we march in the parade.  
  • Junior Shooting Sports Program.  Annually, Post 1799 commits funds to encourage American youth to participate in this American Legion program.  In recent years, we have provided funds for the  4-H Trigger Time Club.  Trigger Time develops youth teamwork, responsibility, self-confidence and decision-making through shooting education.  Trigger Time conducts safety and education programs for air rifle, small bore rifle, archery, skeet and trap, black powder, hunter education and wildlife conservation.            http://triggertime.pbworks.com/w/page/22469183/FrontPage  Post support on hold pending further coordination.
  • Poppies.  On Memorial Day and Veterans Day, the Post participates in a long-running American Legion tradition, in which Legionnaires distribute "little red poppies," made by veterans within the American Veterans Hospitals.  The poppies are symbolic of Flanders' Field, a WWI U.S. cemetery in Belgium.  Our members set up a table only at local stores proud to honor America's military veterans.
  • Manassas Veterans Day Parade.  Starting in 2011, we participated with a banner unit and marching unit in the region's largest Veterans Day Parade.  
  • Get Out The Vote (GOTV) Program.  This American Legion program is a critical right of every American veteran.  We served when our Country called.  We still serve by voting to uphold our freedoms and our Constitution.  In Virginia, we have important elections every year.  Our GOTV program is active in out-reach and aggressively reminds veterans to VOTE!
  • Adopt-a-Highway Program.  Suspended.
  • Post Blood Drive Program.  On 20 April 2013, Post 1799 launched our first major blood drive.  We exceeded the American Red Cross expectations for contributions.  We now sponsor semi-annual blood drives.
  • Partnership Program with USAF Squadrons in Afghanistan.  In Spring 2018, our Post established a partnership with the 455th Expeditionary Civil Engineer Squadron, Bagram Airbase, Afghanistan. Post 1799 followed with 2019 partnership with the 430th Expeditionary Electronic Combat Squadron, Kandahar Airbase, Afghanistan.  Post news releases have appeared in multiple media outlets, including the American Legion website:  https://www.legion.org/troops/242859/legion-post-supports-troops-raises-awareness-about-their-mission  Program was completed and closed in 2019.
  • Cyber Security Awareness for American Families.  Provided about 2,500 US FTA pamphlets to community residents, local elementary school (Mountainview) Prince William County Library system and Ramstein AFB community library addressing best practices, dangers, and awareness when using the Internet.  Pamphlets are designed for family use.  Contact Legionnaire Bob Wyman for details at [email protected]

The new Puller Veterans Care Center (Puller VCC) is being built on the former Vint Hill Farms Station in Fauquier County, which previously served as a United States Army and National Security Agency facility. The site played a critical role in eavesdropping on enemy communications during World War II, when it intercepted a message that helped lead to the D-Day invasion of Normandy.  

The new care center will deliver top-quality care to Virginia veterans in a home-like setting. The 128-bed facility will feature all private rooms that will be organized into households and neighborhoods that surround a central community center.

Hiring is now underway for Puller VCC positions. Open jobs are posted on the Commonwealth of Virginia website: jobs.virginia.gov under Dept of Veterans Services.

DVS will accept applications for admission to Puller VCC. If you would like to be notified when applications for admission are available, please contact Mrs. Kendra Ellison at 804-786-0220 or [email protected]. They will add you to their contact list, then notify you when admission applications are available.
