Post 1177 has earned All-State Status for the 2019-2020 year! Thank you to our comrades for supporting the post's mission of supporting veterans and their families.
Flag retirement 2020 was a big success with the assistance of many comrades to came together to prep and finally retire over 1000 flags. Thanks to everyone who were able to participate and thanks especially to Comrade Max who took on the leadership role for this event.
Every year, Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States (VFW) Post 1177 conducts a Buddy Poppy drive during the Memorial Day weekend to raise money for the Post Veterans’ Relief Fund. These vital funds support Loudoun County veterans and their families in need – and nothing else. Due to COVID-19, we were unable to greet you at the grocery store, hardware store, or street corner, and as a result we’re asking for your support virtually.
Coming home does not mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
Since 1932, our small Post has been helping Loudoun County veterans and veteran family members as they work to rebuild their lives and become part of their communities again after serving their country. However, our building has aged and needs support in its upgrades.
...we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.
WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Persian Gulf War, Kosovo, War in Afghanistan, War in Iraq, War on Global Terror and other Peace-Keeping Expeditionary Campaigns throughout the globe.
You were not alone over there. You are not alone now. There are 20
million veterans who would give their lives for you. Please don't take
I want to take the opportunity to thank you and the VFW for helping in my time of need.
The willingness of America's veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.
