About the Post

Post 8973 was founded by World War II and Korean War Veterans who lived in the Uptown and Irish Channel Neighborhoods of New Orleans. Named after Alfred E. Flynn, a WWII soldier from the Irish Channel who was killed at the Battle of Luzon in the Philippines. Alfred’s brother, John “Fump” Flynn was an original member of the post.
