Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3022
The local chapter of the national Veterans of Foreign Wars organization, Post 3022 is located on Cherry Tree Lane, off Brunswick Pike (Business Route 1). A veterans' service organization that is "dedicated to supporting veterans and deployed servicemembers, as well as their families," the VFW is made up of American citizens who have all served with honor in the U.S. military and have spent time deployed to areas of conflict.
Post members regularly host events for veterans and their families, visit veterans in local hospitals, attend funeral services for deceased veterans and work with other local veterans groups like American Legion Post 414 to give back to the Lawrence Township community.
Post 3022 offers annual scholarships to local students through the Veterans of Foreign Wars' national "Patriot's Pen" essay-writing contest for students in grades 6, 7 and 8 and the "Voice of Democracy" audio-essay contest for high school students. The contests are designed "to foster patriotism by allowing students the opportunity to voice their opinion based on an annual theme."
