Our mission is to foster camaraderie among United States veterans of overseas conflicts and to serve our veterans, the military and our communities and advocate on behalf of all veterans. The purposes of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States are fraternal, patriotic, historical, charitable, and educational; to preserve and strengthen comradeship among its members; to assist worthy comrades; to perpetuate the memory and history of our dead, and to assist their surviving spouses and orphans; to maintain true allegiance to the Government of the United States of America, and fidelity to its institutions of American freedom, and to preserve and defend the United States from all her enemies.
Cantigny Post 367 Veterans of Foreign Wars was founded on March 28, 1920.
The name of the post was chosen by the veterans who organized the post. Most of them served with the 1st Division and saw action at the Cantigny Woods. After much discussion it was decided to name our post after the city of Cantigny, France. The 1st Division’s Headquarters was in a castle, thus the Chateau, and with the approval of the Mayor of Cantigny, we became Cantigny Post and our post home became Chateau Cantigny.
