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.
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 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.
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
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.
