Newtown VFW Post 308 will celebrate its 75th anniversary with an afternoon event on Sunday, March 2.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars, a fraternal organization, began in 1899 after the Spanish American War. As of today, there almost 7,000 VFW posts in the United States. Newtown’s post, founded in March 1939, is the eighth oldest in Connecticut.
Since its inception, the Newtown VFW has extended support to veterans and their families. Members participate in many community, municipal and school outreach programs.
