A satirical reflection by Author/Artist Phil Fehrenbacher

Phil enlisted in the Army in 1965 where you served for years in Vietnam.  He became a graphic designer and has worked for the state of Oregon for 26 years.  He retired in 2003 and started the Cartoon "In-Country".  The cartoons reflect his experiences during his tour of duty in South Vietnam.

There is a new cartoon everyday.



Join us as brothers and sisters of America to preserve the rights of veterans and support each other as only those who share in the camaraderie forged by conflict can. 


Our programs support our service members while they are on the front line, as they are being discharged and long after they return. Your tax-deductible donation will be immediately directed to the VFW programs where your support is most urgently needed.


Commander's Corner

Commander Jeremy C Harman

Good Day Everyone,
Thank You everyone with you help and support of our post over the past months. We have alot of work to do this coming year as we put on BBQs and remember why we are here as VFW and Auxiliary Members.  Our mission is to serve other veterans and our community. To be seen and to advocate for those veterans in need and to recognize those who serve in our community such as our first responders, teachers, and students who show a love for our country.   We need you to be involved to promote our programs, recruit new members and to remember those who have gone before us.   I can not do this alone, nor can I lead these efforts on my own. We have some great leadership that has stepped up to help but we also need you because without you and your efforts, there is no Post. How can you help?  Step up and take a role in the post. There are things that can be done by our less mobile members such as making phone calls, organizing events, applying for grants,  finding sponsors,  and even just by supporting the post by coming to events/ to the post. We need everyone's help to be successful as many hands make light work for all of us.  I look forward to what is to come throughout this year
THANK YOU to all who continue to support our veterans, the community and our Post! 
Your Commander,
 Jeremy Harman 
Navy Chief Retired
