The Largest VFW Post In The World

The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States believes America is defined by how it treats those who sacrificed to protect it, we believe in protecting and fighting for those who were brave enough to fight for us.
Whether on Capitol Hill or in our communities, the VFW fights for Veterans rights, helping Veterans get the benefits they deserve, and assisting Veterans further their education with scholarships and living assistance for them and their families. To do less, would be an unconscious betrayal of our responsibilities as Americans and Veterans. Become an agent of change, join the VFW. 


Should Post 1503 be closed due to inclement weather or for any other reason it will be posted here as soon as the information is received by the webmaster. You may also call the post at (703) 670-4124.

Unexpected Passing of a Comrade
Post 1503 Life Member Comrade Terry "Levi" Klinger passed away unexpectedly leaving behind a wife, two daughters and a newborn son.  This young family was unprepared for this event and does not have the means to pay for funeral expenses.  A Go Fund Me account has been established for them.  Please help if you can. 

In accordance with Governor Northam's update to Executive Order 79 and CDC Guidance VFW Post 1503 has adjusted our mask policy.

  • Fully vaccinated (14 days after vaccination completion) individuals are no longer required to wear masks inside or outside the post
  • If you are not vaccinated, you must still wear a mask
  • Stay home if you feel sick
  • Continue to practice good hygiene
Please do not misrepresent your vaccination status. Doing so puts you and others at higher risk.

DATA and NOVA Veterans Win Federal Grant to Help Senior or Disabled Veterans Get to Vaccination Sites

Reston, VA – MAY 5, 2021 – The Dulles Area Transportation Association (DATA) and the Northern Virginia Veterans Association (NOVA Veterans) have been awarded federal funding for a joint project to provide veterans who are disabled or over 65 with transportation to COVID-19 vaccination appointments. While vaccination availability has increased, an escalating critical transportation crisis is preventing our most vulnerable veterans from getting vaccinated. This is particularly problematic for those veterans who receive their medical care from distant Veterans Administration medical facilities and are without reliable transportation.
