Who We Are

Locally, South Lyon VFW Post 1224 is a vocal advocate for veterans and veteran's issues. While the VFW is primarily concerned with vets who have fought overseas during wartime, we also include other veterans' organizations in our community outreach. We are striving to be one of the best posts in the state. In 2017, our goal is to bring more Iraq and Afghanistan veterans into the post. For all active duty, National Guard and reserve members, as long as you are actively serving, we take care of your dues. If you have an interest in serving as an officer of the post, please contact us:
