Greetings and welcome to our website. We welcome your feedback. You may leave your comments in the 'guest book' located at the bottom of each page or contact a Post Officer via the Contact and Information Page. Please enjoy the site as it conveys to you who we are, what we do, and how we contribute to our community.
To members and non-members alike, I extend my hand in friendship and invite you to join us as we make a difference in supporting veterans and contributing to our community. We have ample opportunity within the Post to use your talents to support a wide array of volunteer efforts. Your active involvement in the VFW and Post 2503 is needed to ensure that the contributions to veterans , our community, and the long history and traditions of the Veterans of Foreign Wars continue without interruption.
Within our Post, volunteers are the heart of the Post and without them we have an empty building. Without people to volunteer, we cannot survive as a Post. Without volunteers, we cannot provide service to veterans and their families. Many volunteers have given decades of their lives to the Veterans of Foreign Wars, to Post 2503 and to their communities .Please congratulate each volunteer for their contributions.If you have not volunteered or can increase the amount of time you can give, please consider doing so.We cannot survive without you.
Our Community, our Post and our Honor Guard unit are in much need of your support. Won't you consider volunteering your time to assist veterans? Please contact:

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.
The ultimate determinant in the struggle now going on for the world will not be bombs and rockets but a test of wills and ideas-a trial of spiritual resolve: the values we hold, the beliefs we cherish and the ideals to which we are dedicated.
Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have.
Ronald Reagon, Fortieth President of the United States of America
