The Gold Star Mission is a nonprofit organization that Honors and Supports Gold Star Families by preserving the memory of our Fallen Heroes through service to others in need. We are a group of people that have a calling to preserve the legacy by honoring our fallen heroes through activities, scholarships and events. The Gold Star Mission is an opportunity to ensure that these service members’ names live on forever, and that their sacrifices create opportunities to enrich the lives of others. Thus, we must Never Forget.
Each year on various dates The Post offers poppies (known as Buddy Poppies) to the public. All poppies offered by the VFW are genuine products of the work of disabled and needy veterans in VA Hospitals.
The VFW Buddy Poppy program provides compensation to the veterans who assemble the poppies, provides financial assistance in maintaining state and national veterans' rehabilitation and service programs and partially supports the VFW National Home For Children.
In addition, any profits from local sales go right back to supporting veterans in the local area. We are truly gratefully for your support for this program and how so many are willing to contribute to this tradition.
Every year on December 7th, the AMVETS sponsor a dinner for all veterans and the public to remember America’s entrance into WWII. It’s a way of remembering a day which will live in infamy forever.
Fellowship is available every Wednesday and Saturday morning from 8-10 at the veteran center.
