Eshleman - Pankake - Wolf
Eshleman-Pankake-Wolf VFW Post 9639 is  a VERY ACTIVE Post.  We are named for three service members from the local area who paid the ultimate price in the service to their nation in World War I. In many respects we cannot honor or venerate their sacrifice more than these humble men already have, yet it is our duty to do so. Our brothers and sisters in-arms who have fought and died on foreign soil deserve recognition for their sacrifice. This we try to do in all that we do.
VFW Post 9639 is an active and prosperous organization and a resource for our Veterans and our community. 

If you would like to join us, simply ask. We meet the fourth Thursday of every month at 1900 Hours, at our Post Home,  376 N. Crawford  Rd, Shellsville.   If you are a member, just come out, if you qualify for membership, we'd love to have you join us!


 Are you a Member of VFW Post 9639 and served during the Cold War?  Our post in conjunction with U.S. Senator Pat Toomey's Office will recognize Cold War Veterans this Veteran's Day! Fill out this form to be recognized.


Keep up-to-date on how the VFW is working to improve the quality of life for veterans, service members & their families and the community.
