Post History

Veterans from Post 324 Sunrise, gathered at VFW 7115 and chartered Post 365, May 12, 1993, East Sunrise/Lauderhill. After several years the name of the Post was changed and chartered on 30 January 1997 to Arthur R Lanni Memorial Post 365 in memory of the Past Commander, Arthur R. Lanni. The post has continued to meet on the 4th Tuesday of the month since being chartered. Originally meetings were held at VFW 7115 until they moved location. The post continued to meet at the Dan Pearl Library for one year until being offered a meeting location at the Sunrise Senior Center. Post 365 has consistently been involved in the activities of the city on Veterans Day and Memorial Day programs and supports Piper HS and the Sunrise community.

MEMORIAL DAY has always been an outstanding occasion in this community. In addition to memorial events throughout the Sunrise community, the  goal of every Veteran to it's last man is to keep MEMORIAL DAY sacred to the memory of our war dead of all of the wars of the country; and all graves are decorated on this National Holiday.

 ARMISTICE DAY, now called VETERANS' DAY, originally marked the end of fighting in World War I. It is an important holiday on the calendar of Legionnaires everywhere and in the hearts of all Veterans, as it has been in ours.  Annually the Post sponsored the Armistice Day Parade. An important tradition was established when the Post led in the memorial exercises at 11 o'clock on the morning of November 11, marking the exact hour of the cessation of hostility on the war fronts.
