About Us

 

The La Salle Veterans of Foreign Wars Post was mustered in on October 21, 1945 and was dedicated to veteran's service and community service. Since our begining there have been 34 people who have served as Post Commander many for more than one term, of those 34 dedicated individuals 7 are still alive today. Over the years we have been involved in our community by supporting Little League Baseball, Girls League Softball, Scouting, Safety Programs, Patriotic and Americanism education of both our youth and adults. We have advocated for veterans through legislation at both the State and Federal levels, and were one of the organizations that lobbied for the creation of the La Salle Veterans' Home. We continue today to promote veteran's issues at the local, county, state and federal levels. We strive to promote patriotism and americanism through community involvment and the schools by volunteering to address schools and groups on the patriotic duty of every citizen. We sponsor schollarships for Junior High students and High School Students with the VFW National Patriot's Pen and Voice of Democracy competitions every year.

We work closely with our Auxiliary, which was chartered June 13, 1954, together we strive to make life better and safer for all  in our community through education and volunteerism. If you would like to join us and help us in our efforts we welcome your inquiry and urge you to check out our membership page or contact us with your questions.
