Welcome to VFW Post 6873

Veterans of Foreign Wars Martin D. Denson Post 6873 is now on Facebook! Please “Like” our Facebook page and follow us to keep up with our events, bands and specials!



A new website is under construction so may encounter some bumps and roadblocks.

Currently the BETA site has the same basic pages this original site does and more are being worked on. You should be able to see the calendar, some RV Park and Canteen information, and the newsletter.

Take a spin and let the post officers know what you think. Oh - why the references to driving and roads - the site is supposed to be compatible with mobile devices (just don't use them while driving).

The Veterans of Foreign Wars, better known as the VFW , was originally founded in 1899 as the American Veterans of Foreign Service and is a voice for returning and currently deployed service members and their families. The 2.4 million members of the VFW and its Auxiliaries are located in 8,500 VFW posts around the world. We welcome everyone who meets VFW eligibility requirements, regardless of age, race, religion, or gender.

Post 6873 is dedicated to supporting those who sacrifice so much for this country's veterans, service members in the US Armed Forces, and their families.

Our purpose shall be fraternal, patriotic, historical and educational; to preserve and strengthen comradeship among our members; to assist worthy comrades; to perpetuate the memory and history of our dead, and to assist their widows and orphans; to maintain true allegiance to the Government of the United States of America, and fidelity to its Constitution and laws; to foster true patriotism, to maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom; and to preserve and defend the United States from all her enemies, whomsoever.
