Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
The VFW is dedicated to promoting patriotism and investing in our future generations. If you are or know of a democracy-loving high school student interested in a $30,000 college scholarship or a patriotic middle school student interested in winning $5,000, these scholarships may be for you.
Look for the VFW Post 8466 Chuck Wagon at various town and local events. Enjoy our delicious Hot Dogs, Burgers and Brats along with a selection of other snacks. We look forward to serving you!
