How we got started
The history of our Post began on December 17, 1960 when our Post 8672 was formed in the Jarrettsville Fire Company with 25 members. The first commander of our Post was Ed Coscia.
In 1962 Post 8672 purchased 37 acres of land in Jarrettsville for $9,000. Milford White laid the block for foundation.
On October 3, 1970 a groundbreaking ceremony was held for the brand new building of Jarrettsville Manor Memorial VFW Post 8672.
The first spadeful of earth was turned up by department commander Jump with the aid of Post Commander Keif.
The Post Color Guard, Henry K. Ellis, Captain, Cleaveland E. Huber, Raymond Heffernan, Emory Bell and Glenn Leslie opened the ceremonies with the Advancing of the Colors. The Pledge of Allegience was recited. Reverend Partee Boliek, pastor of St. John's Lutheran Church, Sweet Air, Maryland, delivered the invocation.
