WELCOME TO DARIEN MEMORIAL POST 2838

Serving Veterans and the Darien-area Community for over 30 years
As defenders of freedom, we want to welcome all combat veterans into our ranks to become part of our elite group.  Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the War on Terrorism, or anywhere else you earned a campaign medal or received hostile fire pay. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.  Now bring that same passion and drive for service back to helping the community and your fellow veterans.
 

DONATE TO THE VFW

Our programs support our service members while they are on the front line, as they are being discharged and long after they return. Your tax-deductible donation will be immediately directed to the VFW programs where your support is most urgently needed.
