The members of Post 3935 and its Auxiliary are committed to preserving and honoring the memory of those who gave their lives and fortunes in defense of our Republic and it's ideals.
On Memorial Day Post 3935 honors our fallen by placing flags at the graves of over 600 local veterans who lie at rest at Santa Clara Cemetery in Oxnard, CA. Veterans at rest there fought our nation's wars from the Spanish American War through modern conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Post 3935 hosts pool teams in the APA League including two competitive teams of our own. If competition is not your thing, join us any day of the week for a casual game. It's always free and it's always fun.
The Buddy Poppy was immortalized by Major John McCrae's poem "In Flanders Fields" written during World War I. It entered VFW symbolism in 1921 and represents the blood sacrifice made by veterans throughout our history.
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.
...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.
In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers. For he today that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother. - William Shakespeare
That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. - President Abraham Lincoln
