AMERICAN LEGION POST 32 GREYBULL, WYOMING
Our community shapes us. We shape our community.
Our character is formed by the nature of our home and the people we share it with. We respect the hard work of our neighbors because we all live in a land that very grudgingly yields profits. We cannot escape the adventure of living in such a hard country, and somewhere between profitless hard work and adventure has grown a reverent admiration of our stark landscape. Out of this mix has grown a profound sense of personal responsibility and communal interdependence. We grumble about the success of our neighbor but we will drop everything to aid any neighbor in need. Needless to say, we have responded when our country called for help. From Colonel Torrey's Raiders during the Spanish American War, to young men serving in the World War One trenches in Europe, both the Pacific and European theaters of World War Two, the Korean War, Vietnam War, and the War on Terror that persists to this day, we members of Post 32 served proudly and returned to serve our community.
We are the American Legion, Post 32, Greybull, Wyoming.
Greybull sits in the center of the Big Horn Basin in north-central Wyoming. War veterans have influenced Greybull's history and identity. Early trappers and mountain men escaping the restraints of civility or horrible memories of war passed through the area hunting and trapping. Later, intrepid adventurers came to establish or work on enormous cattle ranches that lined the edges of the Big Horn Basin and spread out to cover the entire Basin from Cowley to Thermopolis and from Meeteetse to Ten Sleep. John Borner, a veteran of the Civil War, labored hard to build a farm on the Big Horn River between the Greybull River and Dry Creek. When the Burlington Railroad pushed through the area in the early 1900's, the accompanying Lincoln Land Company purchased John Borner's farm and laid out the future town of Greybull on his land.
The American Legion Post 32, Greybull, Wyoming, is located in the Big Horn Basin in northern Wyoming
