VFW Post No. 1

VFW Post 1 is the first and oldest VFW Post in existence. It was founded in 1899 by members of the First Colorado Volunteers returning from the Philippines during the Spanish American War and commanded by General Irving Hale.

The first meeting took place in the Colorado State Capitol on Dec. 1, 1899 and the organization has been meeting every month since then.

Today, the VFW is one of the largest and most active veterans organizations in the United States and Post 1 continues the tradition of being on the forefront of service to Veterans and to our country.
