Post 1990 celebrated its 75th year of supporting Greene County's Veterans.

We received the Diamond Jubilee Award from our National Commander, Harold Roesch II, congratulating us on this historic event in our Post's history.  

It was with great sadness that we had to postpone our 75th anniversary celebration that was planned.  This was decided out of concern for those that might want to attend but are being cautious about either spreading or contracting the Covid-19 virus


Rest assured that we are working for Veterans as much as possible during this pandemic and that we will have a Great 75th Celebration as soon as it is safe.

Thank you for your continued support of VFW Post 1990.
