The James Sill Brown Post #124. "Post #124 is named for the three young Madison natives who made the ultimate sacrifice of dying on the European battlefields on World War I. As with virtually any Legion Post, the local post has sought to support veterans, not only from that War, but, in its earliest days, some who served in conflicts prior to, and to any who have served during wartime since its inception. Today's membership includes veterans of World War II, the Korean Conflict, Vietnam, the First Gulf War, and subsequent actions in the Middle East. A perusal of this membership, past and present, would read like a "who's who" in Madison, with many of the community leaders and businessmen having been represented."

"The Madison Post of the American Legion is working hard to reorganize and revitalize itself after having come close to losing its charter due to a lack of membership and inactivity. At the present time, membership stands at 25, but growing or even maintaining that number. It is a constant challenge with an aging veteran base, and with an occasional comrade being reassigned to that "higher post" which none ever return. Thus, we strive to reach out to those who meet the membership criteria, who have faithfully served their country in days past, and who are willing to continue serving their community today."
