VFW POST 295

Gallagher Hansen VFW Post 295 -South St. Paul MN. was chartered in 1919 (100 years ago) by a group Veterans who after serving in WWI, returned to our community. They were proud of their Military Service and were seeking the comradeship of those who like themselves knew first-hand what we mean when we say; “Some gave all, but all gave some”. So, Inspired, by the knowledge that; “Freedom is not Free”, they dedicated themselves to serving their fellow veterans, their Families, their widows and their orphans and their community. It is this Legacy that allows us to say: “We take Pride in 295 because here we truly, Honor the dead by serving the Living”. – Mike Labovitch, Commander

A WORD FROM OUR POST COMMANDER

Greetings Comrades,

This year we celebrate our 100th Anniversary of Post 295 and we are making plans for some celebration events. Along with that I am asking our members to become more involved in the community and to seek out our fellow veteran’s that maybe in need. and just not veteran’s but others in the community, let’s find projects or programs that we can do or you may have an interest in doing. We have members in other communities so let’s take this opportunity to see how we can be involved as well. If we want to grow and be noticed in our community we need to have more members to get involved even it’s just a few hours a month. Let’s recommit ourselves to veterans and community.
