Here's a story about the VFW, or actually one vet in particular, and information about their activities:
My dad belonged to a number of veterans groups: the American Legion, the VFW, Catholic War Vets and was an officer or commander at the local, state and national level in all 3 of these. The smaller towns usually always had and still have these halls, whereas it seems in the bigger cities they have fallen by the wayside. For being a much smaller organization, the CWV post in LaSalle, IL had their own hall and it was quite an active group back in the 60s anyway.
There's still a VFW hall in Oak Lawn at 52nd Ave just south of 95th St.
