BG William O. Darby VFW Post - Fort Smith
 
 
 
WELCOME FROM THE COMMANDER: 
 
Thanks for checking out the BG William O. Darby VFW Post 8845 official website!  
 
We are a nonprofit Veterans service organization with many programs and services that work to support Veterans, Service Members and their families, as well as our very own local community of Fort Smith.

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 Global War on Terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns.
 
Our Post meets monthly on the second Saturday of the month at 10:00 a.m. If you're a VFW Member, I highly encourage you to attend our meetings and fellowship with fellow comrades at our Post!
