The Veterans of Foreign Wars built their organization on the four cornerstones of preserving veterans’ rights, advocating a strong national defense, promoting patriotism and offering community service.
The purpose of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and Auxiliary shall be fraternal, patriotic, historical and education, and to preserve and strengthen comradeship among its members, to assist worthy comrades, to perpetuate the memory of our dead and assist their widows and orphans. And, to maintain true allegiance to the government of the United States of America, and defend it from all enemies whomsoever.
VFW Post 541 opened in 1921. It is the oldest continuous operating Post in Arizona, and is named for Bucky O’Neill. O’Neill was a Captain in the famed Rough Riders and died in battle at San Juan Hill.
