On March 28, 1991, a restored, Vietnam era F-4C Phantom fighter jet was acquired by Post 560 through the US Air Force Static Display Program.  The Phantom was acquired from Sheppard Air Force Base in Wichita Falls, Texas.  The cost of acquiring the jet was free, but transport cost was $3,299 and trucked to Houston by the Huff Portable Building Company, charging only travel expenses. This was all made possible by the hard work of P.R. Frederich, Jimmie Atchison, John Brukner, and Jim Harmon, who escorted the jet on its travel.  Special thanks also goes to Burt Russell, Co-Chairman of the Airplane Committee.  The Desert Storm, as it’s affectionately been named, is now a permanent attraction at Post 560.

The American Legion is a mutual-aid and social veterans’ organization, founded in 1919 by veterans returning from WWI, and was later chartered under Title 36 of the US Code.  With nearly 3 million members in 14,000 Posts worldwide, the Legion exists to support veterans through issue-oriented US politics, lobbying on behalf of the interest of veterans and service members.


Post 560 welcomes home our military service members.  We invite you and your family to be a part of a long standing tradition of support and service.  We strive to provide a friendly, neighborhood outlet for social fellowship and community support.
