Memorial Day 2020 Ceremonies have been canceled, but we are still remembering those who gave their all. You can find the short and long version of our Memorial Day Video Presentation in the announcement section or Click on the FOLLOW US Facebook button at the bottom of the home page to view short version tribute to the Fallen.
We have had to close the Post, Meetings and Pub until we are allowed to open, 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
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.

Long Version (17:53)VFW Post 6604Closure 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.
