Funeral Team

Each year, members of VFW Post 379 provide services for more than 100 funerals for service members and veterans. Without the support of the VFW and its member volunteers these services would not be possible. If you would like to support the efforts of the VFW funeral team please make a donation to the post so we can continue this good work.

  • Education, employment and transition assistance
  • Military quality of life
