The mission of Judd Kendall VFW Post 3873 is to foster camaraderie among United States veterans of overseas conflicts. To serve veterans, the military, and the community. To advocate on behalf of all veterans.
The vision is to ensure that veterans are respected for their service, always receive their earned entitlements, and are recognized for the sacrifices they and their loved ones have made on behalf of this great country.
The Judd Kendall VFW Post 3873 is an active post centrally located just a few blocks west of downtown Naperville. It is unique in that the post is co-located with Naperville American Legion post 43. The organization welcomes all current and prior members of the Armed Forces and members of the post come from all walks of life and every branch of the military. Monthly meetings are held the second Thursday of every month at 7 pm.
As Commander Parker notes, the post is focused on three key areas:
- Assisting veterans
- Promoting patriotism in the community and schools
- Providing social activities to connect veterans to each other and to the community
