  • September 11, 2018

    Today marks the 17th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center in Manhattan, NY, the Pentagon in Washington D.C., and the brave fight by passengers aboard UA Flight 93 in Shanksville, PA that ended in the deaths of the brave souls as well as the terrorists that hijacked the jet. The passengers actions, no doubt saved the lives of others that the terrorists intended to murder. We must never forget!

    Today marks the update of VFW 3319’s Webpage. The future intent of this page depends on Post leaders. It may be replaced by a Microsoft Webpage or a new Facebook page; just a couple of ideas being considered. If you have ideas or suggestions, please contact Mel Rabideau at 920-766-1988.

    If you are a veteran, please consider joining our Post; We need fresh ideas and fresh young capable veterans that want to provide service for their fellow comrades in the local community.
