Inscription.  World War I and II veterans organized the Glen Allen American Legion Post 244 in 1946. Sheppard Crump, a member of the First Caucus of the American Legion and later the Adjutant General of Virginia was the first Commander. Dr. Alexander McLeod, World War I veteran and legionnaire, donated the land to build the Post. The first Post shared a steel Quonset Hut structure with the National Guard built from state and private funds in 1949. It burned in 1962. This brick structure replaced it later in the year.
 
Erected 1996 by County of Henrico. (Marker Number HC-5.)
