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.

WWII
Korean War
Vietnam War
Persian Gulf War
  Kosovo
War in Afghanistan
War in Iraq
War on Global Terror

and other Peace-Keeping Expeditionary Campaigns throughout the globe.

 

"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.

Welcome to the website of Joe Wagner Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7313!

VFW Post 7313 serves Pittsboro, Siler City, all of Chatham County and the surrounding areas.

We meet on the fourth Tuesday of every month (except December) at 6:30 p.m. at 219 West Street, Pittsboro, North Carolina. New members are always welcome!

Feel free to contact us with any questions or information. If you know a veteran, service member or veteran/service member's family in need of assistance, please let us know.

After several years of planning and execution, the Post has created a Veterans Memorial Garden at the front of our building. Seven flags are displayed with lighting: the United States of America Flag, the POW/MIA flag and the five Armed Service flags. There are two granite park benches, donated by local families and dedicated to the memory of family members who were veterans. The Memorial also includes a "Path of Honor" Walkway, consisting of engraved pavers donated by local residents to honor the veterans of our community who have so patriotically served our country. The last major component of the Memorial, a polished granite monument emblazoned with the five Armed Service emblems, was installed on 7 November 2016.

The Post has now turned its attention to the urgently-needed renovation and refurbishment of the Post building itself to provide a proper Veterans Meeting Center. Completion of this work would allow fulfillment of our goals of increasing community presence, of making a more attractive meeting place and of creating a new face to the public. 

The Post recognizes that there will be many veterans among the new residents attracted to the county by such developments as Chatham Park. We wish to be able to provide them with an attractive, well maintained, and functional building. 

In order to fund the necessary work, our "Path of Honor " paver program will continue. Clicking this link will take you to a donation submission form to order the pavers, specifying the text to honor the donor’s chosen veteran.

We can be reached via email at info@vfw7313.org or by phone at 919-542-0927.

If you are a veteran and would like to join the VFW, we invite you to fill out our Join the VFW form.

You can find more information about the Post on our Facebook Page and Twitter.

The North Carolina Veterans of Foreign Wars has a rich tradition of serving veterans, military families and their local communities.  We invite you to explore this website and our entire VFW North Carolina network of sites to learn more about our organization.

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.
