                  History is what happened, Memory is our visiting with those to which it happened.

The Nipomo Veterans Resource Fair was fantastic! Many VA supported vendors were in attendance. From home support to getting Veterans out onto the water, Finance to Insurance and Korean War to ME Service Veterans, all of it is now part of history we made today, together.

We thank ALL of our Post 10978 Volunteers. Special mention to Josh Miller who became our main contact with this event. 

Today we also start a new chapter for our VFW Post. Local History, in the previous century, had a serious impact on the families and friendships along the Central Coast. EO 9066, in which the President of the United States authorized the Internment of American Citizens. From this rose the most decorated Unit for it's size that the United States military has ever known. They are remembered as The 442nd Regimental Combat Team.

This page will now carry notes to memorialize these men and the "Go for Broke" motto they lived by.

Next regular Post meeting is Wednesday, I hope to see you there.

Yours in Service,

the volunteers.

Memories of the 442nd

President Roosevelt activated the 442nd Regimental Combat Team on February 1, 1943, nearly one year after the signing of EO9066.
They fought heroically, leaving behind a record that is still untouched today.

Who We Are 

The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States is a nonprofit veterans service organization comprised of eligible veterans and military service members from the active, guard and reserve forces.

We trace our 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 that would eventually band together and 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. Today, membership stands at more than 1.5 million members of the VFW and its Auxiliary.

Our voice was instrumental in establishing the Veterans Administration, development of the national cemetery system, in the fight for compensation for Vietnam vets exposed to Agent Orange and for veterans diagnosed with Gulf War Syndrome. In 2008, we won a long-fought victory with the passing of a GI Bill for the 21st Century, giving expanded educational benefits to America's active duty service members, and members of the guard and reserves, fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. We were the driving force behind the Veterans Access and Accountability Act of 2014, and continually fight for improved VA medical centers services for women veterans. Now with The PACT Act there is more available. This link will assist you with finding more information on what is available for you.

Besides helping fund the creation of the Vietnam, Korean War, World War II and Women in Military Service memorials, in 2005 the VFW became the first veterans' organization to contribute to building the new Disabled Veterans for Life Memorial, which opened in November 2010. And in 2015, we became the first supporter of the National Desert Storm War Memorial which is planned for construction at our nation's capital.

We have many programs and services that work to support veterans, service members and their families, as well as communities worldwide. Please check out our latest fact sheet or spend some time browsing our site to learn why No One Does More For Veterans.
