I'm a veteran in need of assistance. How do I get help?  If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 for immediate assistance. The VFW strongly advocates suicide prevention. If you need to talk to someone, you can click here to go to a VA website where Veterans and their loved ones can call 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1, chat online at www.VeteransCrisisLine.net, or send a text message to 838255 to receive free, confidential support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, even if they are not registered with VA or enrolled in VA health care. VA also provides support for Service members through the Military Crisis Line. Service members and their families and friends can call and text the Veterans Crisis Line numbers and can chat online at www.MilitaryCrisisLine.net/Chat. For non-emergent situations, the best method to obtain help is to call the Post and ask to be referred to the Service Officer, or if he is not available, the Quartermaster or any other Post Officer. Your situation will be reviewed and we will assist if we can or refer you to the correct agency for your issue.

 

 I'm a member of the VFW but I don't believe I'm getting my money's worth. What can I do to fix this? The VFW is not just a social group. We're a service organization dedicated to assisting veterans and their families. The best way you can realize a profit on your investment is to BE INVOLVED. Post 392 has events going on every month in support of our members and their families, local veterans and their families , our local community, and in support of national veterans programs. These events require the time, effort, and support of our membership. Even if you only come out and help out for an hour a month, the reward of seeing the smiles on the faces of those served or helped, the camaraderie with those that  have served and understand what makes a veteran special, and the knowledge that your efforts contribute to our success and the greater good of our community are what make the difference. For more information on Post events, click on the Calendar of Events tab in the column of links on the left side of this page.

 

I like to visit the Post for lunch, after work, or on weekends to relax, get something to eat or drink, and maybe watch a sporting event. What do you offer and can I bring friends? The Post 392 Canteen is open 7 days a week. The schedule can be found on the Contact Us page. We offer lunch from 11:30-1:00, Monday through Friday, have a weekly dinner on Thursday evenings and the Kitchen is open on Friday evenings and Sundays during NFL season. All NASCAR races and Sunday Ticket NFL games are shown on the nine big-screen TV's at the Post, which when not otherwise in use, can be tuned to other sporting events as available. As for your friends, absolutely!! You simply need to sign them in and have fun! For more information regarding this, please refer to the Member Guide and Calendar of Events page.

 

My question isn't addressed above.  Who do I ask for an answer? The Post Officers, Ladies Auxiliary Officers, and Canteen Staff stand ready to provide assistance or direction to the proper source for assistance. You can reach us by visiting the post, calling via telephone, or by e-mail using the links provided on the Contact Us page.

 

We need volunteers to assist with our Post events; please contact any Post Officer.
