D. PAULSON FOSTER AMERICAN LEGION POST 82

The Carnegie American Legion Post 0082 was founded in 1919. It was named for its first commander, D. (David) Paulson Foster. He served our country in the Great War (WWI) as a member of Company A 305th Signal Battalion, 80th Division A.E.F. The Honorable D. Paulson Foster had the distinction of being the youngest jurist officiating in any Pennsylvania Court of Record. Judge Foster was born in Carnegie on May 29, 1887 and was only 46 yeas old when he succumbed to influenza on April 20, 1933. He founded and served as Post Commander for the Carnegie Post which was chartered by Pennsylvania in 1919 thus becoming one of the first posts organized in Pennsylvania and in the United States. Judge Foster was active in veterans' affairs helping found many of the American Legions in the Pittsburgh area. He also helped found the Albert G. Baker Post No. 86, Veterans of Foreign Wars.

Our Post currently has an active Color/Honor Guard, an American Legion Riders Chapter, a squadron of the Sons of the American Legion (SAL), and a Unit of the American Legion Auxiliary. We host numerous activities throughout the year including flag retirements,  Carnegie's Memorial Day Parade, providing a luncheon for hospitalized veterans, breakfast with Santa as well as numerous other activities referenced on this website.

Our Post also has a Memorial Home Association which features a bar and social area where our members can interact. 

Thanks to our SAL Squadron the Post now has a covered concrete deck which will be available throughout the year for the enjoyment of our members and guests.
