Welcome to VFW Post 8189! I hope you have had an opportunity to look around our new website.  As you can see, it is still under construction and will be for a while longer.  As shown below, we are located between Crystal River and Homosassa, Florida.  We have over 380 members and are growing.  Our goals are to support our veterans as well as the community.  We were instrumental in establishing the Veterans Memorial in Old Homosassa that recognizes those who have served our country and gave all.  A new section has been added to the Memorial recently that recognizes Veterans awarded a Purple Heart. 

We welcome new members and their guests to the Post.  We have activities almost every day of the week including games, food by our Auxiliaries, a Jam session on Thursdays that drawn a spattering of local musicians who drop by now and sit in with the group and music on Friday and Saturday nights. It is a fun place and you are always welcome!
