VFW Post 3396 has more than 300 patriotic Americans, both members and non-members, who dedicate thousands of volunteer hours for our community.

Over the last decade, approximately 80% of support received from VFW members and patriotic Americans was applied directly to veterans service, community service, legislative advocacy and military service programs worldwide.

At the local level we are continually inspiring patriotism in our young people with awarding scholarships in our Voice of Democracy, Patriot Pen essay, Scout of the Year and Teacher of the year programs. We strive to thank America’s educators by providing them with helpful resources and encouraging our members to visit local classrooms. This lets the VFW help educators with America’s future leaders and bring history to life!

We participate in a wide range of assistance programs aimed at helping service members and veterans of every generation. It is the mission of the VFW post to work with unit commanders and senior enlisted personnel to develop supportive relationships with units before, during and after deployments. we offer a vast network of free resources and a variety of direct support for military members and their families. We have recently renewed our cooperation with our Adopted Nevada National Guard units and are currently getting ready for Holiday parties and deployment ceremonies.
