Amarillo Gets National Recognition for Serving Veterans
In most mid-large sized cities you can find a Veterans of Foreign War Post. The VFW is a nonprofit dedicated to serving our veterans and their families. Whether it's covering the cost of our fallen heroes, supporting struggling military families, getting legal justice for veterans, or just creating events our heroes can come together and just hang out. The VFW does more for veterans than any other organization.
VFW Post 1475 located right here in Amarillo is receiving national praise this week as they have been awarded "Number One Post in Texas". With over one thousand Posts just in the state of Texas, this is quite an accomplishment.
Our chapter has been in the same building since 1951 and is long overdue for some repairs. Memorial Day is right around the corner if you would like to honor our veterans with a donation or learn more about our local Veterans of Foreign War you can visit www.vfw.org
