Thank you for taking some time to read a little about our Post’s story with all that’s entailed with the VFW and our Post’s history. Our organization has a long great history of over 90 years here serving in the city of Mesa, Arizona.  Throughout that time the VFW has participated in community events, assisted our local youth programs and supported our veterans albeit emotional, economical, social and resource support.

We’re providing our history information about our non-profit organization to give the public knowledge of what we’re all about here in Mesa. We have information about the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Cross of Malta and Buddy Poppy, the Post’s history and namesake(s), and our historic building. Also provided is specific detail about the ceremonial POW/MIA table that is found in our building and in many other VFW and other non-profit veteran establishments.

Post 1760 has a goal to continually strengthen current ties with the community and youth, and to create new ones with those learning about our organization online and in person in our support and assistance to veterans and veterans’ families. As Post 1760 progresses we keep in mind the VFW slogan, “Honor the Dead by Helping the Living“. We encourage any veteran, and/or family member of a veteran to join the VFW organization in carrying that thought and motivation forward.
