Peter J Courcy Post 178

Frisco, TX

Welcome to the American Legion, Peter J Courcy Post 178, Frisco, Texas website. Post 178 is named for Frisco resident Peter J. Courcy, who was KIA in Afghanistan in 2009. Today, our Frisco American Legion continues to serve our country by serving our community in a multitude of ways. Some of our programs include supporting our veterans through financial assistance, or visiting them in retirement and rehabilitation facilities, presenting the colors for events large and small, and fighting for our veterans rights.

We are also very involved with the youth and teach patriotism in schools, sponsor Frisco students in the Boys State leadership program at the state capital in Austin, host an oratorical competition, fund scholarships, and support local Scout Troops.

Membership Meetings

Because of COVID-19 and until further notice, membership meetings will be held monthly on ZOOM on the third Monday at 6:30pm. Meeting details will be sent to your post email address several days before each meeting.
