If you or someone you know recently lost a family member who served in the military, you may request our VFW Honor Guard to perform a memorial service. Each year, the VFW Honor Guard and the VFW Auxiliary perform memorials at gravesides, funeral homes, and churches for no charge. Contact your funeral home for details and requirements.
Come out to any or all of the community parades. Our Color Guard and Rifle Team honor our veterans, citizens, and community by leading local parades with our flag held high throughout the year. There is nothing more humbling than witnessing citizens like you showing your patriotism along the parade route.
