Welcome to the Website of  Tennessee Post 141 of The American Legion.  This website will be going through many transitions in the near future and I will be looking for fellow members to assist me with adding interesting content, photos, or suggestions and critiques.  I am new to this post and a novice at building websites so please bear with me as we work to make this a website we can all be proud to be part of.  I also have a busy full time job so I will be working on this site as time allows.

Besides just having a website, the host for this site offers unlimited email addresses with the ******  I will be able to give directions on how to set this address up so you can send and receive emails with our own unique site address.  I can also set it up so that any emails sent to your address can be forwarded to your regular email address.  Just drop me a note if you want me to set this up for you.  Once you request the email address you will receive an email  with your new email address and links on setting your password and setting up your account.

Food for thought: You must have noticed an outstanding characteristic of every end that the ego has accepted as it’s own.  When you have achieved it, it has not satisfied you.

That is why the ego is forced to shift ceaselessly from one goal to another, so that you will continue to hope it can yet offer you something. T144


This week is a very special time for us to reflect, honor and respect all of our fellow Veterans, their Family and Loved ones who have and continue to serve through our various groups, posts and activities.


Thank you dear Lord; for watching over us as the world goes through a transformation. To transform the world we must begin by first transforming ourselves.

Now is the time for us each to actively pursue that transformation…

Today’s Message: “Nothing can prevail against a Son of God who commends his spirit into the hands of the Father”.

Our Prayers go out to the Family of John Smith, a member of our post, who recently passed over and to the Family of Richard Fleek for the loss of his Brother. May they rest in Peace.

Our Legion Post consists of Veterans from different branches of the armed forces, of members of different backgrounds, races, beliefs, and we support many organizations and community services but none are as critical as the Legion’s BE THE ONE program.  We served wearing different uniforms but now we MUST serve each other and leave no one behind.  Click on the card to get more information on this outstanding program.

Since I am still new to the Post, many of you do not know me, I’m Russ Mauzy, your website administrator, and an Army Veteran.  I currently drive a truck for a full time living so I might not always be in the immediate area to meet, however, my phone is always on and it doesn’t matter the time of day or night, if you need someone to talk to, feel free to call me anytime.  (615)295-3257
