If you’ve earned a
combat medal, served in Korea, received Hostile Fire or Imminent Danger Pay,
you are likely eligible to join the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
We like our members to
take an active part in supporting veterans in our community, but we understand not
everyone has the time or ability to be very involved. That’s okay; simply being
a member places you amongst our ranks. Those strong numbers enhance our voice when
addressing our government at all levels. Will you stand with us?
The VFW Department of
Wyoming has 31 posts throughout the state, with three of those posts in
Cheyenne. Each Cheyenne post is unique,
and members should join the post that best fits their needs. Our Post, 11453, focuses on serving veterans
and our community. We don’t own a building or run a bar. Instead, we raise
funds through poppy donations. Those donations always go back to veterans and
the community. Here are some of the agencies we’ve supported financially in the
past two years.
- Habitat for Humanity –
rebuilt a fence for the widow of a veteran
- Wreaths Across America
– placed wreaths on the graves of veterans
- Grace for 2 Brothers –
helped this suicide prevention group purchase gun locks
- Wyoming Coalition for
the Homeless – purchased fruit for the homeless
- Veterans Administration
– purchased a shed for the inpatient rehabilitation garden
- Final Salute Quilts –
helped create quilts for veterans in the VA hospital
- One Reach – helped this
group provide meals for the homeless and/or needy
- Central HS JROTC –
provide monetary awards for top-performing cadets
- Veteran – helped pay
- Veteran – helped pay to
- Veteran – helped pay travel expenses to brothers funeral in Texas
VFW Post 11453 also supports
VFW National’s efforts in recognizing our students through the Voice of
Democracy and the Patriot’s Pen contests. We take part in the Smart/ Maher VFW National Citizenship Education
Teacher Award. I’ve attached the latest VFW Fact Sheet for you to read.
