We remember Dean Lund - An officer and active member of Post 1081 passed away peacefully on Wednesday Aug 5, 2020 with family by his side. An inspiration to this post as well as other Veteran organizations in the Wayne county area, our brother will be missed. Our hearts go out to his family and community as we remember Service Officer Dean Lund. Thank you sir for your continuing service to our country.

Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
The mission of VFW Post 1081 is to actively
help Veterans. We will also provide education to the public about the Veteran
experience and promote healthy camaraderie and
patriotism in our community. As in 1923 when the "Chaplain Kieffer VFW post
1081" was first chartered, our service and leadership will help guide the
next generation of Veterans toward a better community through engagement,
acceptance and a commitment to lead fulfilled lives today and in the future
Our programs support our service members while they are on the front line, as they are being discharged and long after they return. Your tax-deductible donation will be immediately directed to the VFW programs where your support is most urgently needed.

That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. - President Abraham Lincoln
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. - John 15:13
