Stallings-Williams Post #206 was granted a temporary charter by the National Headquarters of the American Legion on September 25, 1946, with 47 names on the roster.  We have been serving the veterans community ever since.  Our membership is currently near 800.  We have a very active American Legion Auxiliary (Department 206) and a great Sons of the American Legion (Squardon 206).  The Legion, Auxiliary, and the SAL combine to make a strong membership group and a very active post.

The name "Stallings-Williams", was chosen from two servicemen of the area, who gave their lives in the service of their country. During World War II, James Franklin Stallings, born July 5, 1923, son of Morris E. and Molly Ward Stallings, was lost in action over Holland on September 22, 1944 while serving in the 82nd paratrooper Division. Jesse Whittier Williams, born May 25, 1917 at Chesapeake Beach, Maryland. Son of William S. and Anna M. Williams, was lost in defense of his country on August 17, 1944 in France.
