About the VFW

The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, with its Auxiliaries, includes 2.3 million members in approximately 8,400 Posts worldwide.

Its mission is to "honor the dead by helping the living" through veterans' service, community service, national security and a strong national defense.

The VFW traces its roots back to 1899 when veterans of the Spanish-American War (1898) and the Philippine Insurrection (1899-1902) founded local organizations to secure rights and benefits for their service: Many arrived home wounded or sick. There was no medical care or veterans' pension for them, and they were left to care for themselves.

In their misery, some of these veterans banded together and formed organizations with what would become known as the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States. After chapters were formed in Ohio, Colorado and Pennsylvania, the movement quickly gained momentum. By 1915, membership grew to 5,000; by 1936, membership was almost 200,000.

Since then, the VFW's voice had been instrumental in establishing the Veterans Administration, creating a GI bill for the 20th century, the development of the national cemetery system and the fight for compensation for Vietnam vets exposed to Agent Orange and for veterans diagnosed with Gulf War Syndrome. The VFW also has fought for improving VA medical centers services for women veterans.

Besides helping fund the creation of the Vietnam, Korean War, World War II and Women in Military Service memorials, the VFW in 2005 became the first veterans' organization to contribute to building the new Disabled Veterans for Life Memorial, which is being constructed in Washington, D.C., and is expected to open in 2010.

Annually, VFW members and its Auxiliary contribute more than 13 million hours of volunteerism in the community, including participation in Make A Difference Day and National Volunteer Week.

From providing $2.5 million in college scholarships to high school students every year to encouraging elevation of the Veterans Administration to the president's cabinet, the VFW is there--honoring the dead by helping the living.

We are always looking for new members. For details, give us a call anytime or just stop by the Post.

Commander's Message


Hello once again Comrades. As your new Commander (been there done that) I welcome the challenges that lie ahead. First I want to wish our past Commander all the best in life that lies ahead.

I am very pleased that we are a non-smoking Post. The response of members, both old and new, and transfers is looking good. Many state that the no smoking rule is what has had them returning, joining and transferring. I along with many volunteers from within our ranks and also from the surrounding community have worked very hard cleaning up and painting the canteen. Thanks to all who helped.

As you may know the Menís Auxiliary is no longer. They chose to close down, I am sorry for that. But there is good news. The VFW National has approved to open a new VFW Auxiliary which is gender neutral. There will no longer be a Ladies or Mens Auxiliary but one strong cohesive group. I and many of the other Commanders welcome this. My goal now is to join together both units and make one strong Auxiliary working together to make Post 9236 bigger and better.

In the future we will have new programs and events. All will be posted on our website. Come on down join us for a pleasant lunch, watch a game, or simply socialize with your fellow members. Remember we serve lunch from 11:00am till 2:30pm we can always use help with lunches or any other activity. Get back to your Post and enjoy it!!!

God Bless!
Joe Peters
