Chartered by Congress in 1919, The American Legion is the nation’s largest organization of U.S. wartime veterans. Post 302 of Hutto received its charter in December, 2008, and is named after Richard Arlen Oman. Oman graduated from Hutto High School in 1961, and Texas A&M University in 1965. He was teaching in Fayetteville when he was drafted into to U.S. Army in the fall of 1968. Barely half a year later, he was killed in action in South Vietnam in April of 1969.
Through a variety of programs, events and activities, the members of the Richard A. Oman American Legion Post 302 of Hutto live their motto, “To Proudly Serve Our Veterans, their Families, the Hutto Community and Our Country.”
Monthly business meetings are held on the fourth Monday of each month, from 7pm-8pm.
