VFW POST # 3848

Some of the Battle Streamers adorning our Post Colors

The VETERANS OF FOREIGN WARS OF THE UNITED STATES is a patriotic veterans and service organization that meets in comradeship for the benefit of veteran's causes and for service to our community. We provide Color Guards for civic functions, Honor Guards for military and veteran's funerals (Contact Color Officer) as well as numerous programs for the benefit of our community, funded in part by the rental of our hall for private gatherings. Membership is restricted to honorably discharged veterans who have served in combat with the U.S. armed services including the women veterans who served in combat zones in all branches of our armed forces.

There is a common bond that exists between the men who have shared the military experience: A shared sense of duty and a common belief in a cause higher than self. Our nations' veterans chose to serve and by doing so, assumed all the risks associated with maintaining freedom. VFW members are here because they understand the true essence of America and its ideals and beliefs and the price they paid to be eligible to join the ranks of the VFW.

"Soldier, rest! Thy warfare o'er,
Sleep the sleep that knows not breaking,
Dream of battled fields no more.
Days of danger, nights of waking."
