Who We Are

“Honor the Dead by Serving the Living”

We hold regular meetings on the 2nd Thursday of the month. Our Post is very active and has been honored as Leading Post in the State of Tennessee for Community Service, and the plans show no indication of slowing down.


We serve the community in several ways; we host lunches and support local VA hospital patients, for example. You will recognize one of our charitable programs throughout Hendersonville area schools by the display of American flags in the classrooms, and we support Cancer Aid & Research Programs.

Who Is The VFW?

No One Does More for Veterans

The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States (VFW) is a nonprofit veteran service organization comprised of eligible veterans and military service members from the active, guard, and reserve forces.


We trace our roots back to 1899 when veterans of the Spanish-American War (1898) and the Philippine Insurrection (1899-1902) founded local organizations to secure rights and benefits for their service. Today, membership stands at more than 1.6 million members of the VFW and its Auxiliary.


We have many programs and services that work to support veterans, service members, and their families, as well as communities worldwide. Please check out our latest fact sheet or spend some time browsing our site to learn why “No One Does More For Veterans.”
