We have had to close the Post, Meetings and Pub for 30-days, due to the coronavirus issues. Please read full explanation in announcement section below.

Since 1922, the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States has distributed Buddy® Poppy’s to raise funds to support charitable programs, patriotic programs and assist veterans and their families. We want to thank Folsom Businesses: Safeway, Walmart, Mary's Gold Miner and Lowe's for allowing us to be in front of there stores this year, Nov. 9 & 10, 2019. Local Veterans Thank You
Memorial Day 2019 Ceremonies were a great success. Thanks to all who made it a great event. Folsom City Council member Ernie Sheldon and Folsom Fire Chief Felipe Rodriguez were the keynote speakers. You can check out the videos and pictures on the Folsom Veterans Hall Facebook page or VFW 6604 Auxiliary Facebook page.
The Folsom Veterans Day Parade was held on Monday November 11, 2019. It was a great Local event, supported by the residents of Folsom. Your local Veterans thank you for your support.
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. Check our resources section.
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. Local Veterans if you have a eligible campaign medal join our ranks. Contact us through this site.
VFW Post 660430-day Closure NotificationAll:
I am regretfully announcing the closure of the Folsom Veterans Hall for a period of 30 days. The Pub will be closed for all purposes. All events and meetings at the Hall have been cancelled, including our regularly scheduled VFW Post 6604 meeting this coming Wed. I hope that we will be able to reopen 30 days from now but there is no guarantee that will happen. A 30-day closure will put us in a precarious financial situation. We have asked the City of Folsom to waive our rent payments during this time. They are considering our request but have not yet given us an answer. We are hopeful that we can recover, but the safety and welfare of our members and patrons will remain our highest priority.
Please know that this was a very difficult decision. I know that many of our members rely on the Hall as a place to go and socialize. Because most of our members and patrons are in a high risk category for COVID-19, the risk of staying open was simply to great, especially in the face of medical advice to the contrary. We did NOT receive an order to close from the City and we are not closing in response to the Governor’s request that all bars close. I sought the advice and counsel of the Post Officers, but the decision was mine alone. I was hoping to hear from the City before I sent out this message. Unfortunately, my duties at the Court kept me from sending it earlier today. I apologize to anyone who made the trip to the Folsom Veterans Hall, only to find it closed today. Thank you for your understanding.

You were not alone over there. You are not alone now. There are 20
million veterans who would give their lives for you. Please don't take
A man's country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.
The willingness of America's veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.
