VFW in Charlestown


Charlestown Memorial Post 8497 Veterans of Foreign Wars is alive and well in Charlestown, NH. We are not a cliche smoke filled bar, 1)  we are a non-smoking establishment- smoking permitted outside, 2) we are a veterans organization dedicated to the well being of US Military Veterans and their families. Our Post hall is used for bingo and hall rentals to raise funds to support our veteran and community service programs, as well as a meeting place for Veterans to come together.


To foster camaraderie among United States veterans of overseas conflicts.

To serve our veterans, the military, and our communities.

To advocate on behalf of all veterans.


Ensure that veterans are respected for their service, always receive their earned entitlements, and are recognized for the sacrifices they and their loved ones have made on behalf of this great country.


  • Always put the interests of our members first
  • Treat donors as partners in our cause
  • Promote patriotism
  • Honor military service
  • Ensure the care of veterans and their families
  • Serve our communities
  • Promote a positive image of the VFW
  • Respect the diversity of veteran opinions
