VFW Post 1809
Our Post is named for Rodney J. Hobbs of Eros, LA.  Rodney enlisted in the military at the age of 20.  He served overseas from June 12, 1917, until his death on July 21, 1918, and his engagements included Cantigny, 2nd Battle of Narne.
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.  Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the war on terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.
Welcome to VFW Post 1809, Monroe, Louisiana Website.
