Welcome to the VFW Post 4278, Camas / Washougal WA.
VFW Post 4278 is just 19 miles east of downtown Vancouver, WA on HWY 14, nestled in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge. We meet for coffee on Wednesday and most Fridays at 9 am at the Camas Community Center, 1718 SE 7th Avenue, Camas. Come on out, we will keep the coffee hot.
Our Post business meetings are on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7 pm at the Community Center. Auxiliary business meetings are on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 9 am at the Community Center.
Membership in the VFW is only open to veterans who have served in a foreign war or served in hostile waters and are entitled to the campaign medals. However, anyone in the member’s family may join the Auxiliary. Please contact us for more information.
The purpose of the VFW Post 4278 and Auxiliary are fraternal, patriotic, historical and educational. Its aims are to preserve and strengthen comradeship, assist our veterans and their families, to maintain true allegiance to the government of the United States of America and to foster patriotism through its programs.
