John A. Deaver American Legion Post 12, Jackson, Tennessee
American Legion Post 12 of Jackson, Tennessee is one of the oldest and most distinguished posts in our state. Post 12 received its temporary charter on August 4, 1919 and the permanent charter was granted on March 25, 1921 making it the 12th post established in Tennessee and one of the oldest in the United States! From World War I forward, our Post has enjoyed a long and active history. We are revitalizing our post with the addition of new members and we are moving towards a full slate of officers. Our building is currently located at 130 Airways Blvd, Jackson, TN and we have held meetings in various locations now that the facility is being leased to another entity.
