Operation "Overhall" is a capital improvement campaign to raise funds for major upgrades at the Post. We are having a big fundraiser on November 9th to update the Post Hall in coordination with Veteran's Day. Please help us make our goal of $50,000 by donating with the button below and referring our goal to a local business to become a sponsor. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to purchase tickets for the event.
The hall at the Post is available to the public for events. The hall can hold up to 150 people. If you are interested in more information and availability, please contact us at 860-563-8876 or email the Hall Rental Coordinator at PR@vfw2138.org Please see our Gallery page for pictures of the hall, or stop by to take a look at it.
You will periodically see our Post members or volunteers in the community selling Buddy Poppies. 100% of your donation goes directly to Veteran Outreach events and to our Relief Fund for those who come under hard times as a show of support to our beloved Veterans. Every Poppy is put together by a disabled Veteran, and 10% of the money we pay for them is given directly back to that disabled Veteran who made it.
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! The members and volunteers are always willing and ready to support Veterans in a time of need. If you know of a Veteran who needs help and doesn't know where to turn, please contact any of the Post officers. If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.

On the battlefield, the military pledges to leave no soldier behind. As a Nation, let it be our pledge that when they return home, we leave no veteran behind.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. - John 15:13
That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. - President Abraham Lincoln
