Welcome to Post 1
History of Post 1
VFW Post 1 was founded in 1899. The first meeting, held in Colorado’s State Capitol, was the first of many used to organize benefits and rights for veterans involved in overseas conflicts.
The Ladies Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars (LAVFW) was established in 1914 – 100+ years of service to our veterans, their families, communities and our youth. One of the most important programs the Ladies Auxiliary VFW established was donating over $3 million annually towards cancer aid and research.
All proceeds are 100%; there is no overhead.
