Because our Post is located on Village of Los Lunas property, we are not allowed to have a Canteen where liquor can be served.

No, we do not currently have an Auxiliary.  However, our spouses and significant others are very active in helping Post members accomplish their mission.  We also have many supporters and sponsors that are willing to step up and help whenever we need them.   For example, at our annual 4th of July Open House patriotic citizens/supporters show up to help us setup tents, tables and chairs.  They make themselves available to serve the public a free meal consisting of hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, cold watermelon, and soft drinks.  We are very fortunate and count on their support. 

Unfortunately, we do not have a Hall that we can rent out for events.

Absolutely not.  We are here to service our Community - Free of Charge - whether you are a War Veteran or not.  Please be aware, however, that based on our By-Laws, Veterans of Foreign Wars must be our number one priority.



Our mission statement is "to foster camaraderie among United States  veterans of overseas conflicts and to serve our veterans, the military, and our communities and advocate on behalf of all veterans."


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.
