The officers and members of American Legion Post 223 would like to congratulate David Franceschi of our very own Troop 224 who earned the rank of Eagle Scout on 4 August 2019. Congratulations David!
Despite recent changes by BSA, Post 223 has elected to keep our Scouting Pack/Troop as an all-boy program. The decison was based on our intention of maintaining longstanding tradition, the availabililty of multiple Brownie and Girl Scout Troops the local area, and in the spirit of fairness since Girl Scouting remains open to girls only. Post 223 offers many other programs to support girls, young women, and female Veterans in the local community. Please contact the Post Adjutant directly for more information.

Sykesville Memorial Post 223 received 2017 Best Scouting Program award by the Americal Legion Department of Maryland for the Western Maryland District!!
Support for the Boy Scout movement came at The American Legion's first National Convention in 1919. Today, there are more than 2,500 Boy Scout units sponsored by Legion Posts throughout the country.
Supporting Boy Scout activities is natural for Legionnaires, who bring their service-learned skills and experiences as Veterans to bear to help build character and positive traits in "Young America." Few other Post activities generate more goodwill from the community.
