Serving North Hudson's Veterans and Communities since 1919
Naturalization Ceremonies & Citizenship Initiatives
Weehawken American Legion Post 18 is proud to be the first Post in the Garden State’s modern era to restore the tradition of Legionnaires welcoming our country’s newest Americans.
Partnering with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Weehawken American Legion Post 18 hosts naturalization ceremonies, offers support for residents pursuing citizenship, and nurtures available resources to care for local immigrant families.
Weehawken Post 18 instituted its annual Americanism Awards to commend local teachers, first responders, reporters, and other professionals who contribute to the well-being our area and its residents.
Each year, our veterans reach out to local stakeholders in an effort to celebrate those who exemplarize selfless service.

Weehawken American Legion Post 18 is dedicated to the democratic principles to which our veterans once swore their service.
