Post 4055 is made up of of the towns that surround the City of Platte City Missouri, which include Platte City, Weston, Dearborn, Camden Point, Tracy and Edgerton.

Our VFW Post has a Veteran Service Officer that will be happy to assist veterans and family members of veterans with getting help or assistance for any veteran that is qualified to receive it. His name is Marlin Legault.

You do not have to be a VFW member for us to help you receive VA Benefits. You may contact any VFW member and they will assist you in contacting a Veteran Service Officer.

Post 4055 also encourages you to contact our full time Veterans Service Officer, Lloyd Blair at (816) 922-2881. Lloyd serves our veterans on a daily basis from his office located at the Kansas City VA Hospital on Linwood Blvd, in Kansas City, MO.

The District 3 Commander is Jim Hoffman. The Dept. of Missouri, VFW Commander Chris Johnston, Phone: 417-270-0069, email: , has selected a motto for the year 2015-16 that reflects the core of what the VFW is about. We serve the needs of veterans, both active duty and those who have served.

The motto is “Honor, Courage, and Commitment”

We believe that family takes care of each other on a daily basis and always strives to help each other in times of need.

If you are a veteran, a family member of a veteran or know of a veteran in need, please encourage them to contact us, or notify us and we will contact them to see how we can help. They do not have to be a member of the VFW for us to help.

Every member of the VFW is a warrior, a combat veteran that is currently or has served and defended the ideals and freedoms of our Constitution by helping to defeat our countries enemies. We continue to serve and strengthen our great nation with the ongoing programs and commitments across the USA, in our individual states, and more importantly, in our local communities where we reside.

We are your neighbors, co-workers, business persons, teachers, family members and friends in your community. We are easy to identify. Simply look for the person with a firm salute and a tear in the corner of their eye when Taps or the Star Spangled Banner is played. We are forever caretakers of our beloved United States of America. We welcome you to join us.

I invite all combat veterans that are not yet members of the VFW to contact me at (816) 721-7310, or to contact any member of the VFW so we can answer any questions that you may have on how you too can be of service to your fellow veterans or how you can receive Veteran Benefits.
