What is it exactly that the post does? Well to answer that, you should know that this post is very active in several projects and community activities. We pride ourselves in being an “All American Post”.
Due to the floods that occurred on April 17, 2016, our post is temporarily closed. Until further notice our monthly meetings will be held at the Katy Senior Center located at 5370 E. Fifth Street, Katy, TX 77493.
****Once we are back in our facility the meeting information below will resume****
Normally on the 1st Monday of every month the post holds a ‘Business’ meeting. We ‘set’ up the post and have dinner with our comrades from around 1815 hours or 6:15 p.m. for you civilians, to 1930 or 7:30 p.m. You need not bring anything, except your appetite, unless you feel the urge or you’re asked to. There are times that the meeting has to be moved to another date so it is best to check the Post Calendar to verify the date.
At 1930 hours (7:30) the ‘business’ meeting begins. During this meeting we discuss the previous month’s items that might have been carried over to this month and upcoming events that need our attention, whether that be monetary or volunteers. Some meetings are quick, others have lasted until the 9 p.m. time limit. But, as a whole, these meetings serve as a way for veterans to get together and swap stories, get help from the service officer or just have a place to be with other veterans.

One of the best things about our post is the museum. That’s right we have our own museum (currently closed) in the VFW hall! All of the items are donated and are cherished; we have several items that date back to the WWI era.
We have a very diverse group of veterans, we have WWII vets, Korean vets, Vietnam vets, Desert Storm/Shield vets, OIF/OEF vets, and Afghanistan vets. We are very proud of all our members.
We are active in several yearly projects such as the Katy Rice Harvest Festival and Parade, Katy Rodeo, Memorial Day, 9/11 and Veteran’s Day celebrations. We also hold various military remembrances such as; D Day, VJ day, Desert Storm, OIF, OEF, and many others.
Our Honor Guard is one of the most requested in the district; we conduct flag ceremonies and funerals for our fallen comrades, not only for post members but throughout the Katy and Houston area.
We have several other projects or events that happen throughout the year, if you feel the urge/need to help or chair one of the events please, please let the post Commander know.
