VFW Post 1860 -Devastated by Fire

$1,435 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 19 people in 38 months
On the afternoon of Saturday, July 11th our VFW post 1860 in Front Royal, Virginia was devastated by fire.  Thankfully, there were no serious injuries suffered by fire and rescue officials, VFW members or our patrons during the tremendous efforts to save the post.  In the end, the structure and the contents were deemed a “total loss”.

While Post members are deeply saddened by this tragic event, a renewed sense of purpose has stirred our aged and experienced membership.  Along with the Front Royal community, these Veterans, many having served in our Nations conflicts from WWII to the present day, are committed to restoring the Post and its stature as a charitable giving resource.

Our small Post has much fight left in it and with your help, we can rebuild a modest structure and reclaim our place serving the Front Royal and surrounding communities.

Hello From Post 1860!

The Post situation has been both frustrating and exhilarating over the last 6 months. We have fought, clawed and continued our work and our place within the Front Royal community.

A whirlwind of developments have occurred and an in-depth status will be posted in a few short days. For the moment we will share this...

Town, county, state and federal guidance has finally been received. Formal restoration planning commenced late in February. The upcoming update will include an architectural space plan, a 3-D rendering and specific /detailed Post 1860 fund raising needs/goals.

We thank you for your continued support, your kindness and your consideration!
