Commanders Welcome:

On behalf of Leo Carey American Legion Post 56 and it’s 600 post members, 450 Auxiliary members, 150 SAL members, and Post 56 has 90 Legion Riders, I extend a welcome to our Post website. Located in Beautiful Albert Lea, Minnesota, we are at the crossroads of Interstate Highways 35 & 90, the ” Gateway to Southern Minnesota.” Our success stems from the many volunteers who have worked together to assist other post members and many community programs and events throughout the year. Post 56 works tirelessly to provide a atmosphere where members or non-members and their families can enjoy delightful dining, entertainment and fellowship within our facility. Please stop-in and visit we’d love your company!
