An amazing 1110 donated sets of sweats were ribbon-wrapped and boxed 12/26/2021 at the Loudoun County VFW Post 1177 in Leesburg. Fifty plus volunteers from local northern VA organizations spent the morning "wrapping with care" the new sets of sweats along with 800+ pairs of socks for delivery to our veterans at later dates. Hand-crafted “Thank you for your Service” cards made by children at local schools also adorned many of the sets.
Congratulations to Max Gutierrez for receiving the VFW Award of Commendation from Commander Ray Raymond H Delpesche at our monthly membership meeting held January 5, 2022.
We will be hosting the February Membership Meeting at the Post Home on February 2, 2022 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.
On November 11, 2021, VFW Post 1177 participated in many events around Loudoun County: • Balls Bluff Cemetery Sunrise Service • George C. Marshall’s Dodona Manor Veterans Day Commemoration • Mission BBQ Veterans Day Event (Sterling) • Tribute at One Loudoun Veterans Day Event • Walmart Leesburg Veterans Day Event • Leesburg Courthouse WWI Plaque Rededication
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 were unable to greet you at the grocery store, hardware store, or street corner as in the past, 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.
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.
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.
The willingness of America's veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.
