Serving Nevada Veterans Since 1937
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.  Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the war on terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.


Join us as brothers and sisters of America to preserve the rights of veterans and support each other as only those who share in the camaraderie forged by conflict can. 


Our programs support our service members while they are on the front line, as they are being discharged and long after they return. Your tax-deductible donation will be immediately directed to the VFW programs where your support is most urgently needed.




For Immediate Release

23 March 2020

Following recommendations from the CDC and the Nevada State Department of Health, the Henderson VFW Post 3848 has canceled all functions at our building in an effort to minimize the possibility of exposing our members and guests to the COVID-19 virus.

Effective immediately, all Post functions in the Canteen have been canceled for the remainder of this month (March 2020).  This includes Fish Fry on Friday nights, and our Taco night on Tuesdays. The Governor has closed all non essential businesses until April 16th 

April's nominating meeting has been postponed until we can safely open the post again. 

The average age of the membership is 70+ years .This closure was done out of an abundance of caution to protect our membership, guest and their families as many of them are at a high risk for severe illness from the COVID-19 virus due to age and underlying chronic medical conditions.  VFW 3848 will continue to be pro-active in order to mitigate community spread of this pandemic.

We will continue to monitor the recommendations from our Health District based on conditions of this pandemic in our community.  On March 30, 2020, we will make a decision as to our plan for April and going forward.

The VFW 3848 Service Officer located in our building will not be available until after we get the all clear from the Governor's office. We encourage everyone to follow the advice and directions of our Health District and Nevada State Department of Health to minimize the spread of this virus and protect yourselves and family.”
