Welcome to VFW Post 112 on the web. We are the oldest post in Kansas. Post 112 was chartered on January 14th 1920. We proudly display our trophy for having the worlds 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 Post rich in history with an eye on the future. Our meetings are the third Tuesday of each month. Our canteen/bar opens at 5PM Tuesday, 3PM Friday, Saturday at Noon, and Sunday at 10AM. We are located at 1560 S. Topeka, Wichita KS. 67211. We are just minutes from 135. On the North East corner of Harry and Topeka. Call (316) 265-3255 ,or email us at vfw112@yahoo.com

 Do you want to support your Post with its veteran and community service programs? You can very easily. We are currently participating in the Dillons Neighborhood Rewards Program. Simply purchase a card through the Post and as you use your card to buy groceries or fuel you help accumulate credits for the Post. Phone or stop into the Post to buy your card and get information. Ph. 265-3255.
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.
