The Philadelphia Chapter of the Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge (VBOB) has been working for several years to erect a monument in Philadelphia. Philadelphia has monuments to honor those who served in other conflicts, but there is no acknowledgment of those of our Greatest Generation that served in the largest land battle in human history. Post 405 is supporting their effort and our goal is to erect the monument soon so that the few surviving WW II Veterans are able to participate in the unveiling. Please contact your city councilperson and ask for their support. If you can support monetarily, your donation will contribute to fund the design and construction of the monument.

Donate to support PA recognition in the National Museum of the US Army
American Legion post 405 is raising funds to support the National Museum of the US Army. Opening at Ft Belvoir in Virginia, 2019, this museum will tell the story of our Army not just through artifacts, but through the personal perspectives of those who lived it. Much of the content is given context through the stories of the "Average G.I." men and women who served. Please help us raise funds to help create this important focal point for our Nation's history. Our goal is to raise one dollar for every PA Veteran (about 1 million)
You can add your story to the Museum here: Soldier Registry
