Youth Activities

The VFW and Auxiliary sponsor many programs for the youth of our nation. We sponsor programs in schools on drug awareness, patriotism, etc. We sponsor and work with youth organizations like the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, church youth groups, etc.

Our Post has adopted the US Civil Military Corps, who we use in many events in both the community and at our Post.
