"Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over". With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!!

If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.

     Chartered August 23rd 1932, Wells-McComas Post # 2678, Veterans of Foreign Wars, is named after two young soldiers from the War of 1814.  Private Daniel Wells was 19 and Private Henry McComas just 18 when they served as sharpshooters in Captain Edward Asquith's Militia Rifle Company.  As Major General Robert Ross marched his British forces towards Baltimore, Privates Wells and McComas mortally wounded him, stopping the enemy's advance during the Battle of North Point.  The two young patriots were killed; but, Ross' death is credited to saving Baltimore from falling to the British.
 
     Veterans continue to honor the memory of Privates Wells and McComas and the importance of the Battle of North Point with the community's annual Defender's Day Celebration held at Fort Howard Park on the seconded week in September.

VFW Salutes United States Army for 241 Years of Service
Our nation’s soldiers are America’s true heroes.
 
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – June 14, 2016, marks the 241st year of service from the United States Army. The U.S. Army has evolved drastically since it was originally organized as the Continental Army in 1775; battlefields have transformed, weaponry has evolved, faces have come and gone, military uniforms have varied, but one thing holds fast: the bravery and the heart of the individuals who wear the uniform, and their commitment to their mission.
