On April 5, 2023, VFW Post 1177 held their annual award ceremony for their Voice of Democracy, Patriots Pen, Teacher of the Year, Law Enforcement Officer, and Firefighter awardees.
We are excited to announce that the Hometown Heroes Banner Program is now live! This program is a joint effort between the Leesburg Town Council and VFW Post 1177 of Loudoun County to honor and recognize our brave military men and women who have served and are serving our country. Through this program, banners will be displayed throughout Freedom Park in Leesburg featuring the name and image of a local hero who has served or is currently serving in the military.
VFW Post 1177 was honored to present 2 VFW National Awards to a Law Enforcement Officer and Firefighter in Loudoun County. Loudoun County Fire Fighter Captain Nicholas Krukowski and Loudoun County Sheriff Sergeant Jose Giron were both winners at our local VFW and VFW District, State and National level. Congratulations!
We will be hosting the December Membership Meeting at the Post Home on December 6, 2023 at 7:30 PM. Uniform for the meeting is the Member Cap or Ball Cap. A virtual attendance option will be sent out to the membership. We are located at 401 Old Waterford Rd NW, Leesburg, VA 20176.
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.
Welcome to our new VFW Post 1177 member(s): Alexandra Hopkins, Jeremy Casanave and Jason Cound Welcome and thank you for your service!
On November 11, 2023, VFW Post 1177 participated in many events around Loudoun County: Here are some events that were attended: • Balls Bluff Cemetery Sunrise Service • George C. Marshall’s Dodona Manor Veterans Day Commemoration • Mission BBQ Veterans Day Event (Sterling)
Every year, Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States (VFW) Post 1177 conducts a Buddy Poppy drive during the Memorial and Veterans 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 have been unable to greet you at the grocery store, department store, hardware store, or street corner as we have in the past, and as a result we’re asking for your support virtually.
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.
It is through the efforts of community partners like you that allow us to continue the quality care and services that we seek to provide our deserving veterans. Thank you for your continued support and advocacy.
Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, but in striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong.
It is great to have VFW that really cares and takes care of the veterans within the community. I will never forget you being there for me and my family during these difficult times.
