Commissioned in 1946, the Sterling McClellan American Legion Post 142 was established in beautiful Pompano Beach. The Post was built upon a magnificent property donated by the McClellan family to honor our post's namesake, 1st Lt. George Sterling McClellan, US Army Air Corps, who gave his life in service of our Nation in the European Theater of World War II. Post 142, through its ceaseless voluntary efforts of members and friends, could not be more proud of its exemplary service to U.S. Veterans, their families, and this community! Deepest thanks to all members of the Post from 1946 to the present for making our Home Post a success!
The Sterling McClellan American Legion Post142 has been a proud participant in the American Legion's greater than 100-year history by continuously serving American veterans in and about Pompano Beach and Broward County as a safe social harbor for veteran members, their families, and guests as well as providing a variety of community service and outreach programs and activities.
Post 142 has grown into a strongly unified "Family" consisting of the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 142, the Sons of the American Legion Squadron 142, and the American Legion Riders Chapter 142, all sharing the underlying mission of service to veterans, their families, and our community. Post 142 maintains close affiliations with other veterans' service organizations: The Disabled American Veterans Gold Coast Chapter 133 and the Marine Corps League Detachment 1058 who each serve American veterans through their own uniquely valuable missions.
