Since 1946, Wimberley VFW Post 6441 has been serving Veterans and the community in the Texas Hill Country surrounding the beautiful town of Wimberley – where it is based.
Offering a “family friendly, smoke-free” environment with no bar, the Post organizes and hosts numerous events every year, in addition to the highly renowned Annual Wimberley VFW July 4th Pro Rodeo since 1946. We also conduct our “Bingo” sessions every Friday night with the proceeds benefiting the local community. The membership of the Wimberley VFW 6441 is proud and honored to support our wounded warriors and lost brothers. We have partnered with “Returning Heroes Home” and “The Center for the Intrepid” to raise donations through special events for these programs. We also proudly place flags at our veterans resting place every year.
Returning Heroes Home is helping hundreds of Wounded Warriors and their Families heal since 2006. Returning Heroes Home gives our Wounded Warriors and their Families a place to go outside of a sterile medical and rigid military environment they face every day at Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio, TX. The Center for the Intrepid (CFI) is an advanced outpatient rehabilitation center which blends therapy, simulation, and extreme sports. It is the ultimate joint venture between the American people and the armed forces. Funded through the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund by donations from over 600,000 Americans, the facility is now an integral part of Brooke Army Medical Center. The Wimberley VFW Post 6441 members have fun together. From BBQ cook-offs to Color Guards in parades – we work to have fun and bring joy to our community.
We look forward to seeing you either as a new member, visitor or participant in one of the special events we host for our community and wounded warriors.
