History of Post 8862

VFW Post 8862 is the second largest VFW Post in Europe. It was founded in 1991 by members of the Vicenza, Italy community, and was lead by Commander Clarence Daniels.

Our post was named the Meditterannean Post, and has grown from the original 60 Charter Members into a post of over 1500.  Our membership spans the nation’s conflicts from World War II, to the present conflicts in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

For over 2 decades our dedicated members have been committed to providing a variety of programs to support our troops, our fellow veterans, and our community.
