Serving Veterans and the saint Charles Community Since 1945

St. Charles has an extensive legacy of service, dating all the way back to its days as a Civil War training ground. St. Charles contributed men and supplies for both World Wars, and the community has many unique connections to the defense of freedom, both past and present.

St. Charles Memorial Post 5036 VFW, Inc. is a proud chapter of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, an esteemed nonprofit Veterans service organization. Our post was formed after the end of World War II, on December 20, 1945. This significant timing holds a deep meaning, as it emerged from the desire to support those who had fought in the Greatest War, a conflict that demanded tremendous sacrifices. The formation of our VFW Post was a testament to the unwavering commitment of those who had given so much, and it allowed these Veterans to continue their service to their country, this time in the place they called home. We remain dedicated to supporting Veterans, service members, and their families, while actively engaging with our local community. Join us in continuing this legacy of service, camaraderie, and community engagement.

We are committed to honoring the legacy of our Veterans and the principles of the VFW. We strive to provide meaningful assistance, advocacy, and support to those who have served our country and to contribute positively to our community's well-being.
