our post

Post 8973 was founded in 1974 by World War II and Korean War Veterans who lived in the Uptown and Irish Channel Neighborhoods of New Orleans. Named after Alfred E. Flynn, a WWII soldier from the Irish Channel who was killed at the Battle of Luzon in the Philippines. Alfred’s brother, John “Fump” Flynn was an original member of the post.

show you stand for veterans

 


The VFW was founded for one, single purpose: to assure those who’ve protected our country are protected in return. This protection comes in the form of programs, standing up for veterans rights in Washington, D.C., and reaching out with help in communities across America.

The hard truth is, we can’t do this without your generosity.
Please consider making a contribution today.
