Teamwork ~ Leadership ~ Commitment
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.  Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the war on terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.


Our programs support our service members while they are on the front line, as they are being discharged and long after they return. Your tax-deductible donation will be immediately directed to the VFW programs where your support is most urgently needed.

A satirical reflection by Author/Artist Phil Fehrenbacker

Phil enlisted in the Army in 1965 where you served for years in Vietnam.  He became a graphic designer and has worked for the state of Oregon for 26 years.  He retired in 2003 and started the Cartoon "In-Country".  The cartoons reflect his experiences during his tour of duty in South Vietnam.

There is a new cartoon everyday.

Commander's Corner

Commander Harley Boyles

I often wonder why I am involved with the VFW and with this post in particular. I also wonder why many of you are involved. I guess I can only speak for myself and maybe many of you can relate. I joined so I could give back. Sometimes it’s giving back to my country for giving me such an awesome opportunity and experience. Sometimes it’s giving back to those who really fought and sacrificed for all of us. Sometimes it’s just who I am. I give. I really don’t expect anything in return.  It’s my and Dorothy’s turn and at some point it’s going to be someone else’s turn to give. I just hope we can be just as gracious as many of you have been gracious toward us. We have a great post and I hope we continue being a great post long after we are gone.


Saturday, October 7, 9 a.m.  Flag Retirement Ceremony followed by Post Clean Up!
