KTLA television reporter Gayle Anderson was live in Hollywood to learn about flag etiquette for the Fourth of July at Hollywood Post 43 of The American Legion, the “Post of the Stars.”
Since 1919, Post 43 has been composed of Hollywood professionals in the entertainment industry. Its historic clubhouse, located on Highland Avenue, was dedicated in 1928 and completed in 1929. Built in an Egyptian Revival-Moroccan Deco architectural style, the building features a ballroom, a cabaret-style dining room, an auditorium, a four-room museum, library, conference room, dressing rooms and a Deco bar.
It is a Los Angeles Registered Historical Landmark. Its members have included Clark Gable, Mickey Rooney, Ernest Borgnine, Charlton Heston and Ronald Reagan. There are currently more than 500 members in Post 43, who continue serving America by supporting local veterans and the community.
