Welcome to Clermont

American Legion Post 375 of Clermont Iowa was formed in 1920 by 15 returning WWI veterans. The Post has served the community and veterans since including youth programs, community improvements, and community civic projects.

We have never had a memorial dedicated to and honoring the veterans who have served our country, some making the ultimate sacrifice. Our current project will do just that.

Located in LincolnPark (1903), which is our communities “veteran’s park”, the memorial will consist of 5 slant front 3 foot tall polished black granite markers, each bearing the crest of, and dedicated to, one of our country’s branches of service. These stones are to be located in front of thier respective service flags (shown in the picture). In addition a 6 ‘ centerpiece of polished black granite will bear an inscription from Lincoln’s Gettysberg address:

The cost of the project is estimated at $20,000. A very large amount for our community of 600 residents.
