Post Commander Jeff Dombrof

Welcome to VFW Post 9835’s Web Page. 

We hope you’ll take a few minutes to look through our pages and learn what our Post has been doing – and what we have planned.

As veterans, each Post member has served their country in combat or in a location where their lives were at risk. We’ve served in WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and all the way up to today’s conflicts in the Middle East. Some of us are serving still. When our country called, we answered. 

And now we continue to serve our Warrenton community in a variety of ways: 

  • Participating in local events like Warrenton’s First Fridays and Gum Drop Square

  • Providing financial support to local veterans attending community college

  • Socializing with aging veterans, our leaders of yesteryear

  • Encouraging tomorrow’s leaders through scholarships for Eagle Scouts, Middle School and High School students

  • Rewarding outstanding Law Enforcement and Teachers
