Coraopolis Pennsylvania
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.  Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the war on terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.


MAY 16th, District meeting at Coraopolis VFW.
It is with great disappointment we have had to make the decision to cancel the 2021 Memorial Day Parade.

However, Post 402 will remain active throughout Memorial Day weekend.  We will be offering multiple opportunities for the community to participate and remember those that have given the greatest sacrifice for our freedom.
Saturday, May 29: Buddy Poppy Sales at many of our local store fronts.  Profits from Buddy Poppies funds our veteran assistance programs.  When you see our team out there, please be generous.

Annually, the members of Keith-Holmes Post 402, Veterans of Foreign Wars, VFW Auxiliary and American Legion attend services at a local church to honor deceased Post members, Auxiliary members and all area veterans.
