VFW Post 2365 is dedicated to serving veterans, service members and their families. We are fast evolving to accomplish the National VFW’s objectives, here in our own local community. In doing so, we have a lot to offer our members in the way of continued personal growth, benefits, advancement, leadership opportunities and more. We are an eclectic group valuing the participation of women and men veterans and service members alike.
The VFW traces its roots back to 1899 following the Spanish-American War (1898) and the Philippine Insurrection (1899-1902). Local organizations were founded to secure rights and benefits for those arriving home wounded or sick.
Fast forward these local organizations become known as the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States quickly growing to nearly 200,000 members by 1936 and today number nearly 2 million. Because of those early efforts the Veterans Administration was establishing and the VFW has since continued to push for the rights of those who have sacrificed so much for this country.
