PACT ACT:  The PACT Act is a new law that expands VA health care and benefits for Veterans exposed to burn pits and other toxic substances. This law helps us provide generations of Veterans—and their survivors—with the care and benefits they’ve earned and deserve.
The Act :
(1) expands and extends eligibility for VA health care for Veterans with toxic exposures and Veterans of the Vietnam era, Gulf War era, and Post-9/11 era, and 
(2) expands eligibility for benefits for Veterans exposed to toxic substances

Appetizers & Cheryl’s Subs are available every day for eat-in or carry-out, except during scheduled dinners & lunches (it’s too much for the kitchen help to handle!)
VFW members can access the "Members Only” section of this website by using the drop-down menu under "Login" and entering your VFW ID Number (found on your membership card) and your last name, all in lower case. The Members Only section contains the Post By-Laws and Post General Membership Meeting minutes.

We need help in the kitchen, especially on Saturday & Sunday. Some cooking, serving, washing dishes, cleaning and organizing things. If you have time to volunteer, please email us or call the post any time, 937.859.3896. We’re not asking for full time volunteers, just every once in a while!
