Brentwood VFW Post News
Brentwood VFW is always a bustling post and is very active and constantly hosts events throughout the year.
Every year a select group of VFW Posts are awarded the prestigious All-American Post status. This status is awarded to recognize exceptional VFW Posts for their participation in VFW Programs, as well as the membership with activity gains achieved by Posts, Districts, and Departments.
BRENTWOOD VFW POST 1810 IS AN ALL-AMERICAN POST!
Becoming a Department Commander is a significant accomplishment. To reach this level, you must first climb up the ranks from the District level to the state level, which is known as the department. This journey takes years of hard work, including vital fundraising, the support of a strong steering committee, and the backing of fellow comrades and auxiliary members.
Brentwood VFW is proud to have 3 elected Department Commanders
Henry R. Mannella was elected as the Department Commander of Pennslyvania for the year 2022-2023. This election is a testament to his tireless service and dedication to the organization. As the Department Commander, Commander Mannella played a crucial role in the operations of the state and ensuring that it continued to serve its members and the wider community. We congratulate Commander Mannella and thank him for his hard work and dedication to this great organization.
Commander Howard Adler JR 1996-1997
Commander William Tephoid 1957-1958
At Brentwood VFW Post 1810 we hold numerous events throughout the year, including several annual traditions that we strive to continue. Your support is crucial in ensuring that these traditions endure, and we welcome new participants to join in showing support for our events that are open to the public!!
Each year, the Brentwood VFW participates at the local library to honor the memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. The ceremony features a rifle salute, the playing of Taps, and a reading of a distinguished passage from the Gettysburg Address by the post commander. Following the ceremony, the VFW graciously participates in a solemn ceremony and hosts a lunch for all attendees. This meaningful observance has been a cherished Memorial Day tradition for over 15 years, and the day commences with breakfast at the post before the ceremony.
4th of July
The Brentwood VFW is an active participant in the Brentwood parade that takes place on Brownsville Road. The parade is held to honor our country's freedom and includes many veterans, first responders, and volunteers who march in it. After the parade, the VFW hosts a picnic that is open to all.
Women Veterans dinner
Since 2022 our Auxiliary has been organizing a wonderful dinner to honor the local women veterans in our community. The meal is completely free and prepared by the Auxiliary's volunteers.
To show our appreciation, a plaque is hanging in the canteen. To show our gratitude for those who have served our small toke country.
The Brentwood VFW Post 1810 Funeral Honor Guard’s function is to complement the final tribute to our deceased comrades in arms. The FHG presents a dignified, professional, and military-based appearance. The FHG supports the DoD and VA-provided veteran's funeral benefits by offering a final salute on the arrival of the deceased to their final resting place. The remains are drummed into the area. “A Veteran’s Last Farewell” is read to those gathered and a copy is given to the deceased loved one. Three volleys are fired by the FHG riflemen using M-1 Garand Ceremonial rifles. Three polished M-1 shells are given to the deceased loved one or are embedded in the folded flag representing Duty, Honor, and Service. The FHG is at attention and salutes when the folded flag is carried out from the ceremony. A final salute is given when the loved one pulls away.
