Welcome VFW Post 1675
We worked with Shoshone County and have a Veterans Transportation Van on the road to transport veterans to the VA facilities in Spokane and Coeur d'Alene. Up until March of 2008, there was no transportation specifically for the veterans in the Silver Valley. It took most of the fall 2007 and winter 2007/08 to get this project done. A big thank you goes to past Shoshone County Service Officer, Donna Smith, and past Commander Casey Duncan and all the other volunteers for their tireless efforts in getting this done. If you need a ride, please call County VSO Susan Hendrixson at 752-3331.
Post 1675 is proud of our community service and action in the Silver Valley of North Idaho. We sponsor the Osburn Loyalty Day Parade each year in May. Provide funeral services for all veterans families who request help. Work with the Schools on Patriotic & Flag education and donate to the schools to help with special projects and needs as they arise. We also sponsor VOD and Patriot Pens essay contest each year. We also donate on a regular basis to the VFW National Home, and to Operation Uplink and other projects to help our soldiers currently on active duty. (Recently we donated several medical devices of value to Good Will in the month of October 2016.) These are just a few of the many projects we do each year.
