About Post 824
VFW Post 824, along with the assistance various entities throughout the community, coordinates and runs the Yorktown 4th of July Parade every year. We also put together an advertisement book that gives local businesses an opportunity to present themselves to everyone in attendance at the parade. All "profits" on the parade book go directly to helping veterans in need in our community.
Veterans in crisis
VFW Post 824 works closely with DAV Chapter 13 to assist local veterans through various financial crises. We have helped veterans and their families restore power to their homes, avoid eviction, provide food and shelter for their children, and assisted them with filing necessary paperwork to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Twice a year, on Memorial Day weekend and during the week of Veteran's Day, Post 824 sets up booths at several locations throughout York County, VA collecting donations and passing out Buddy Poppies.
