VFW Post 9907

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 490 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. The Post sponsors a Boy Scout Troop and a Cub Scout Pack. 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.  Currently, we are the home of Tom and Melody Judd. Tom is the Department of Arizona Judge Advocate, who will become the Department of Arizona Commander in 2020. Melody is the Department of Arizona Auxiliary Chaplain and will be the Department Auxiliary President in 2020.
