Post 76 supports NO VETERANS ALONE each Thursday, as we join the Nevada Patriot Guard, Women Veterans of Nevada and Vietnam Veterans of America, at the Southern Nevada Veteran’s Memorial Cemetery, to honor Veterans who are being buried by the County and have no relatives or friends to attend their funeral. Post 76 also supports Wreaths Across America.
Post 76 in cooperation with the Fleet Reserve Association and The Lakes Association sponsors a Memorial Day Observance including speakers, honor guards, ceremonial flag folding and terminating with the passing of a wreath from Veterans representing war eras from WWII to the present to JROTC commanders who then board a boat and place the wreath on the water.
The Post has sponsored Christmas parties for foster children from the Olive Crest organization, providing Christmas gifts, a light buffet, and pictures with Santa Claus to each of the children and their families and foster families.
Post 76 has a gun club where members, friends and families get together to non-competitively shoot and socialize.
Legionnaires from Post 76 volunteer their time to support the Veterans Administration Voluntary Services, Nevada Veterans Foundation, Family Readiness Groups for local Reserve and National Guard Units, Veterans Service Fairs, Retiree Appreciation Days at Nellis AFB, Information Fair at Creech AFB, Boy Scout Merit Badge programs, and Boy Scout air rifle and safety training.
In 2009, Post 76, in the true Spirit of Freedom, was honored to have debated and proposed an appropriate name to honor the only high school in Las Vegas and surrounding Clark County to be named for our local men & women serving in the armed forces, during all war periods; the Veterans Tribute Career & Technical Academy [VTCTA].
The Spirit of Freedom Post 76 proudly took a strong leadership position in 2010 to expedite the creation and development of a much needed, and long overdue, USO lounge for transiting service men & women to relax, meet with loved ones, and enjoy many creature comforts while traveling through Las Vegas' McCarran Airp
