A Message from our Post Commander


Greetings and welcome to our members and prospective members of Chalfont All-American Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3258.  We are greatful you've stopped by to check us out.

My name is John Otte and I am honored and humbled to lead one of the best All-American Veterans of Foreign Wars Posts in the greatest combat veteran's organization on the planet.  We are immensely proud to be among the "Best of the Best" in the VFW system.   What makes us great and proud?  It's the men and women of our post that work tirelessly each and every day to serve and assist veterans and their families.  It's what we were built to do and our post does it extremely well.  

If you are a veteran that has served in the United States Military, we encourage you to come and take a look around at the amazing things our post does for both veterans and our community.  Our chartered purpose is to ensure that veterans receive the benefits, honor and recognition they deserve for the sacrifices they made.   Our Post Service Officers are available to assist with helping veterans with claims with the Office of Veterans Affairs, obtaining copies of Military Records and other services available to veterans.  We stand ready to provide assistance to all veterans regardless of when or where you've served.   

If you are a veteran that has served in a combat theatre of operations we encourage you to contact us about the incredible benefits of being a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.   I can be reached at JVC@vfwpadistrict8.org or you can check out our membership page by following this link.

You will not find better camaraderie or personal care for veterans than in our great post. 

Thank you for stopping by and we hope to hear from you!
