Volunteer Service

Have You Seen Your Legion Family at the VA Clinic in Oceanside?

Everywhere you look in the Oceanside VA Clinic you should see a member of the American Legion Family working side by side to better serve the veterans. The clinic opened in May 2010 and the Legion FAMILY began volunteering in July 2011. To date we have volunteered 19,367 hours equaling $445,429 of FREE LABOR. Between the American Legion Post 146, Auxiliary, Riders & Sons, it is truly a Family Affair. We can be found driving the Shuttle in the parking lots picking up Veterans and taking them to the front door of the clinic and then picking them up and taking them back to their cars. You can find us at the Front Desk assisting veterans with their needs. We love to serve our Snacks & Coffee to those veterans who are waiting for an appointment or just stop by the clinic for a bit of hospitality. The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 146 purchases/donates the Coffee & Snacks for the daily coffee program. Unit 146 donates Lap Blankets, Walker Bags, and Socks for our VA Healthcare programs. Check out the beautiful plants! Yes, we water them and keep the Clinic beautiful. Your American Legion Post 146 & American Legion Auxiliary Unit 146, American Legion Riders Chapter 146 & Sons of the American Legion are committed to our VETERANS. Please contact Mary Thorsten, Lead Volunteer at the Oceanside VA Clinic to see how you can make a difference.
