It has been sometime since our Volunteers could update this page, apologies have been extended from all of us.

Ahem.

We hope to introduce/meet new members at our next meeting, Wednesday June 19 at the Post Building.

With the return of other Volunteers, the return to Service of our Parade Vehicle has garnered interest in membership. The Commando has been at Miner's for the Memorial Day weekend. 

We met Veterans and extended invites to many. If you do not have the new business card for Post Member please pick up a couple, the back having the QR code directly to electronic application for VFW membership. It works!

Next the Commando appeared in the Santa Maria ELKS Rodeo Parade. Greatly appreciated, and again, invitations up!

Thursday, June 6, qwas the 80th Anniversary of the amphibious landings on the beaches of  Normandy. We were invited to honor our WWII Veterans living at the Wyndham Residences in Arroyo Grande California. Photos to your right.

Each of us, we all have life events to live through, learn from and we all have each other for support. That IS our principal purpose as Comrades, independent of the actions we were assigned, the goals and the missions accomplished while we were serving our Country. As Veterans, one and ALL together, we remain here for ourselves, the assistance towards ALL Veterans and the memories of those amongst whom we have served.

Really looking forward to meet new faces and see returning members on these Wednesday night meeting.

Yours in Service,

the volunteers.

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.
