Chesty Puller VFW Post 1503
The VFW is a place to gather together and share good times and experiences with fellow veterans and their families who have been in a foreign conflict, war, expeditionary campaign or part of an occupation force with others who understand what was an important part of our life. It is a great place to meet new friends and reconnect with older ones.
Veterans have experience, wisdom and knowlege that they bring to any community and can effect it in a positive way. Participation also reminds us of who we are, where we came from and where we are going. We can and do make a difference.
VFW's also help to protect earned benefits. Post 1503 has a Service Benefits Officer that can assist both veterans and non veterans navigate thru the Department Of Veteran's Affairs Claims.
