Moorpark's American Legion, Post 502 was chartered in 1966 and has been dedicated to helping veterans, their families…More and the community. Some of the ways the Moorpark post does this are by overseeing a Veteran's Day observance, a Memorial Day observance, sponsoring Boys' State attendees, presenting citizen awards, scholarships and participating in special events such as Moorpark Country Days, Fourth of July events and other community-based programs. As a veterans' organization, the post is also asked to assist with and participate in funerals for veterans.
Post 502's largest current activity is the Moorpark Military Banner Program, in which active military personnel's names will be displayed on banners hanging on light posts in the city.
The organization meets at 7pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Chamber of Commerce office at 18 High St.
