Leadership

Post Officers

2020 - 2021
I may not always believe in and trust our government, but I will ALWAYS believe and trust the American Soldier.  You have taken a sacred oath to protect the many FREEDOMS that so many of us take for granted.  Please understand that I am grateful for your sacrifice(s) and your service on my behalf.  It is an honor to call you "My Countrymen".
   
     
 

OFFICERS


Elected and Appointed
 
This is where the real work of the VFW happens, at the Post level. Post officers conduct the day-to-day affairs of the VFW following the guidelines as established by the By-Laws of the Post, District, Department and National as well as lawful directives of the Post membership. The Post is the direct link to the local community and plays a vital part within the community. VFW Programs are designed to augment and help every Post willing to do the work be a successful Post. Post officers are the voice of the veterans in the community. Post Commanders or their representative are required to attend every duly called District meeting and represent the concerns of the Post at the district level.
