Is there a way to get a list of all the VFW clubs that have a liquor license and serve alcoholic beverages? Our members travel frequently and would like to visit other clubs.

Members can utilize VFW's "Find A Post" feature at www.vfw.org; because Post information is changing constantly, we do not print a list.

Please note: The operation, management and control of clubs/canteens was never envisioned in the purposes of our organization nor is the operation, management or control of clubs/canteens provided for in our Congressional Charter, National By-Laws or Manual of Procedure. In addition to the By-Laws of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, VFW Posts maintaining canteen/club operations serving alcohol beverages are required to comply with all applicable local, county and state regulations pertaining to such operations. In some instances, these regulations do provide for guests, but it is at the discretion of the Post to allow guests entry to their canteen/club. It is a commonly held misconception that membership in the VFW or simply a member of the armed forces offers unlimited access to any VFW Post canteen/club operation, but this is simply not true. Consequently, VFW membership may not be sufficient to authorize admission to a VFW canteen/club operation other than one's home Post.
