The organization fosters a supportive environment and offers financial and healthcare assistance to local veterans in need. In addition to their generous support to veterans, VFW Post 5531 hosts community food drives, provides scholarships to the local schools, donates fruit baskets to nursing homes, and regularly supports the local Scouts program.


“With a county population of around 1,000 people, support and activities are limited. Our organization exists to serve our veterans and the community,” said Darrell Lamme, Quartermaster, VFW Post 5531.
