Post Commander’s Challenge

  Post 1827 is looking for a few new members to help us increase support and make an even bigger difference for the thousands of Active Duty, Retired, and / or Honorably Separated Veterans in the local area. 

  Like the old saying goes “If you haven’t been there lately…then you haven’t been there.” We have just established a large non-smoking section for veterans who enjoy great camaraderie without smoke. We have also recently renovated our outside pavilion, and much, much, more.

  Don’t worry…. for those of you who are looking for and enjoy a “Good Ole Bar with its “smoke um if you’ve got um” flavor with plenty of cheer and old stories”, that option / bar is still alive and well at this Post!!

  Please stop on by the Post, located at 1170 River Road, Charlottesville, and give us a look or RE-look. If your schedule wont allow the visit, then just give me a call at 434-990-1250. I will provide you with the information you need to possible decide to join us in our on-going mission of continued support to the local Veteran Community.

  I hope to see / hear from you soon….but most importantly….THANK YOU for your service to this great Nation!


Bob “Chief” Wyman, USAF, Retired
