VFW Post 9907
You never live till you almost die.  For those who have fought for it, life has a flavor the protected will never know.”

The Charter members of Post 9907 initially met in homes of the members, then in the garage of Gerald Page. The Post Charter was issued by the VFW National Headquarters, effective April 7, 1968. The ground on which the Post home stands today was purchased by the members in 1978.  Over the years the Post home has seen some dramatic changes after the initial building of the canteen, next came the area where the kitchen and the Auxiliary meet. The final addition to the Post Home is the back portion of the hall and the upstairs.

Over the years the Post has grown from the original 26 members to the 376 members it has today.
The Post has an Auxiliary, which was chartered in 1976. Another veteran's organization also calls our Post their home, American Legion Post 76 meets here monthly.  

The community service projects have grown as the Post has grown. The Post Honor Guard provides military honors at funerals for Veterans.  Additionally, our Honor Guard leads the Annual Independence Day and Annual Christmas Light Parades for the City of Show Low, as well as performs flag ceremonies throughout the White  Mountains. The Post sponsors Scholarship programs at the Junior High School and Senior High School levels. Each year the Post provides a Thanksgiving Dinner for members and the community, and passes out food baskets to the needy during the Christmas season. Each November, close to Veterans Day, the Post along with Elks Lodge 2090, put on a Veterans’ Dinner to honor the veterans in the community.   Currently the Post is a collection point for sending packages to our troops in Afghanistan. The programs mentioned are but a few of our many projects. The activities of the Post are many and varied.

        To pay for our many programs, the Post hosts Bingo once a week, and offers buddy poppies for donations.

The Post and its Auxiliaries are active in the community.  Annually our Auxiliary sponsored a Christmas Food Box program, Last year food boxes were distributed to 67 families.  Along with the food boxes, were children's toys for families with children. This is only a small part of the Post and Auxiliary programs
