VFW Post 605: Remembering and Honoring our Veterans

In the United States, Veterans Day is a special day – a day to Remember, to Honor, and to Thank those who have selflessly gone whenever and wherever they were called. In Europe, this day is commemorated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day, commemorating the end of the World War I. Post 605 is unique in the size of its footprint – although the Post is headquartered in France, its members span numerous countries and U.S States. As such, the Post had a global Veteran’s Day celebration.

Our mission is very simple.
We foster camaraderie among United States veterans of conflicts overseas, we serve our veterans, the military, and the communities, and we advocate on behalf of all veterans.
We ensure that veterans are respected for their service, receive their earned entitlements, and are recognized for their sacrifices that they and their loved ones have made on behalf of this great country.

Our core values are to put the interests of our members first, to treat donors as partners in our cause.
We promote patriotism, honor military service, and ensure the care of veterans and their families, and serve in our communities.
We always promote a positive image of the VFW and respect the diversity of veteran opinions.
