Kaiserslautern                American Legion Post GR01

Welcome to the American Legion Post GR01

The Kaiserslautern American Legion Post GR01 has been serving the Kaiserslautern Military community since August 26,1953. This is our new website.

All meetings are held from 1830-1930 on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month (except when the meeting date falls on a German or American Holiday). We are located on R.O.B. Rhein Ordinance Barracks bldg. 368, just follow the signs.

During this past year, we hosted bi-annual dinners for injured troops returning from down range and the Department of France reception after the Memorial Day wreath ceremony at St. Avold, France. We participated in the Kindergrave Ceremony where we remembered and paid respect to 451 American children buried here in Kaiserslautern Germany. We also presented scholastic and excellence medals to the Kaiserslautern High School Junior ROTC students. Additionally, we sponsor an Oratorical Contest for the greater Kaiserslautern Military Community every year. If you would like to participate in this years’ upcoming Oratorical, please visit our Oratorical Contest page for more information.
