The Greater Cincinnati Women’s
Post 644 was founded in 1946, when women veterans returning from World War II did not feel accepted or
understood by the men in traditional American Legion posts. We have a very rich history and we owe a huge
debt of gratitude to our “Grandmothers” who had the fortitude to start an all-women’s post after returning
from service to their country. "Dutch Uncles" were male American Legion members who supported the creation
of women's posts in the forties and fifties. Our older members remember their contributions to the success
of our post in the early days. We are grateful that a handful of these
women are still sharing their wisdom with us today.
