VFW Post 261

Veterans First!

VFW Post 261
10550 Pendleton Pike, Lawrence, Indiana 46236

The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States honors veterans through memorial fund raising efforts, sponsorship of special events for disabled vets and by symbolically recognizing volunteer service. Donations also help victims of natural disasters and less-fortunate children.

The Auxiliary of the VFW, a national volunteer service organization,  was founded in 1914 and is the backbone of many local VFW volunteer efforts.

We would request that you also consider supporting our National Home for Children.  This home provides hope to children and families of veterans and active-duty military at a time when they need it most.  Whether they are military families awaiting the return of a loved one, disabled veterans keeping their families whole while in vocational rehabilitation, single parents working on goals to strengthen their families and make a better life for their children, or children who come to us in need of a loving home. 

Who is a Veteran?
“A veteran--whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve--is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to ‘The United States of America,’ for an amount of up to, and including his life.’”
