Since our activation in 1945, Stephen C. Ludlam Post 331 of The American Legion has been welcoming veterans from all branches of our Armed Forces. We support military personnel currently serving our country and look back on the veterans through out our Nation’s history. We keep alive the memories of their mission and sacrifice for justice, freedom and democracy. And we maintain the principles of the Preamble to the Constitution of The American Legion.
Tatham’s Life Saving Station is the oldest existing building in Stone Harbor, NJ and is home to the Stephen C. Ludlam American Legion Post 331. The Post is named in memory of Stephen C. Ludlam who was killed in action at the Battle of the Colmar Pocket during World War II. For his heroic action in defeating a German machine gun and saving his comrades, Private Ludlam received the Purple Heart and Distinguished Service Cross (our nation’s 2nd highest award).
Pictured above is the home to Post 331. Returning from WWII, our founding members, pitched in to buy the decommissioned US Coast Guard Station. Built as a US Life Saving Station in 1895, today it is refurbished inside and out. It houses a museum of military artifacts and archives from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Persian Gulf, Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. Also on display are murals, pictures and placards explaining the methods used by the first US Life Savers that protected the New Jersey maritime traffic.
