VFW Post 1469, NATHAN HALE POST
 

It was an honor and a privilege to have our own Paul Kelly serve as the keynote speaker when the Dignity Wall came to the Northport VA.

When the Wall came to Huntington, Post Commander Bruce Brenner did the honor. A few pictures from that day are included with the letter below...

Support VFW Post 1469, NATHAN HALE POST
  - A Message From Our Commander

Dear Friend,
 

The VFW is a family held together by extraordinary bonds, that works together to support Long Island’s most deserving. Our most fundamental role is to provide a place for veterans who, especially as they work to readjust to civilian life, benefit greatly from community with the brave few who can truly understand their experience. 


Our Post building has been the recipient of mixed blessings this year – we got a badly needed new roof and repaired foundation with funding secured by NYS Senator Marcellino. We are also grateful for support from Legislator Lou D’Amaro. Unfortunately, a storm hit soon after starting the roof, causing massive flooding at the height of our catering season. Thankfully, the contractor’s insurance covered our dance floor, carpeting and whatever else was destroyed. Our guys put in everything they had to get things up and running and we are back in business. C’mon down and see what’s new! 

 

We’re all about rising above such challenges, and you should know that your support of Post 1469 goes well beyond our doors to advance efforts throughout the community. I think you’ll agree this post has come a long way in the last decade. Even more, I think you’ll agree that our work becomes more and more important with each passing day. In 2010, we:

 

 • Made two visits per month to the Northport Veterans Administration Hospital, bringing food, toiletries, and special comforts to ailing veterans, as well as moral support and friendly conversation.                           


• Continued supporting the Fighting 69th, coordinating care packages and proud support for Welcome Home parties.

 

• Provided VFW services at the funerals of local veterans, providing dignity and support to grieving families as we acknowledge and honor their lifetime of service.  

 

• Supported the Voice for Democracy scholarship program for high school students who deserve a chance at higher education and the Patriots Pen for middle schools, spreading our message of patriotism to area students. 

 

• Provided Veterans Day and Memorial Day programs to Huntington, Harborfields and Cold Spring Harbor High Schools. We have been asked to return next year, and are making inroads with other area schools as well. 

 

• Supplied Honor Guard to events, and turned out in number with Color Guard for parades in our community. Commander Bruce Brenner and Trustee Paul Kelly were each honored to provide keynote addresses when the traveling Dignity Memorial Wall came to Huntington.  

 

• Provided free meeting space for the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), Leadership Huntington, the Boy Scouts and other important organizations.


Your support is critical to our operations. Please book a party, spend the evening with us, or send a donation of $25, $50, or more to support our operations and increase the services we provide to area servicemen and their families. Major gifts of $500 or more will be proudly honored on our wall, and we look forward to loudly and publicly thanking such generosity.

 

As always: Don't mind what it costs to support the work, remember what it cost to be eligible and know that we are grateful. Thank you.

 

Sincerely, Bruce Brenner, Commander

Our Mission

Veterans of Foreign Wars - Nathan Hale
Nathan Hale


The purpose of this corporation shall be fraternal, patriotic, historical,charitable and educational; To preserve and strengthen comradeship among its members; To assist worthy comrades; To perpetuate the memory and history of our dead and to assist their widows and orphans; To maintain true allegiance to the Government of the United States of America and fidelity to its Constitution and laws; To foster true patriotism; To maintain and extend the institutions of American Freedom and to preserve and defend the United States from all her enemies, whomsoever.

There is a common bond that exists between those who have shared the military experience and that bond is even greater among those in combat. There is a shared sense of duty and common belief in a cause higher than oneself. Today's veterans choose to serve and by doing so, assume all risk associated with preserving freedom at home and abroad. VFW members understand the true essence of America and the ideals of democracy for all. 
There is a sign in our Post "Don't mind what it cost to be a member, remember what it cost to be eligible".
