VFW "Over There" Post 112

Veterans of Foreign Wars
"Over There" Post 112
Wichita, Kansas





Welcome to our website. VFW Post 112 was chartered on January 14th, 1920. We are the oldest post in Kansas and one of the oldest in the United States. We proudly display our trophy for having the world's largest membership from 1953 to 1955. We serve drinks on the original bar that was removed from the historic Eaton Hotel in downtown Wichita. 

We are a VFW Post rich in history with an eye on the future. Although we are involved in special events and activities throughout the year we are especially excited about our upcoming 100-year anniversary as we are currently planning many unique events and activities for our centennial celebration in the year 2020.


Our post meetings are held at 6:30 pm on the third Tuesday of each month. Our canteen/bar opens at 4PM Tuesday/Friday and Sunday at 10AM. 
We are located at 1560 S. Topeka, Wichita KS. 67211. Our physical location is the northeast corner of Harry and Topeka streets.

                 ********************************************
We are renewing a fundraising effort that was started a number of years ago. The ceiling tiles of the Canteen are stenciled with the names of members and Ladies that gave to the Post in the past and wanted to have their names enshrined at the Post. For a minimum donation of $10.00 you can have your name among our previous donors. If you wish to participate, send your donation with your name as you want it to appear to:
    VFW Post 112
    1560 S. Topeka
    Wichita, Kansas 67211
These moneys will help us continue our support of veterans in the community, at our local VA Hospital or wherever a veteran is in need.
We Thank You for your support.
