Assisting Veterans in the greater Sacramento region.

At General John J. Pershing, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post 4647, Veterans are helping veterans and their families through encouragement and information about resources. We help veterans in the Sacramento area fill out the paperwork for compensation claims. We educate veterans about the availability of health services.

We offer fun, family activities and camaraderie to fellow veterans and their families. At VFW Post 4647, our members are truly our family.


For more than 100 years the VFW has been an advocate and strong supporter of patriotic and educational programs for our country’s youth. Annually, VFW and Auxiliaries donate millions upon millions of hours mentoring youth groups, visiting hospitalized veterans, volunteering in community kitchens and blood drives.

Thank you, Veterans is written on a chalkboard in front of the American flag.
no one does more for veterans
The sacrifices made by veterans and their willingness to fight in defense of our nation merit our deep respect and praise - and to the best in benefits and medical care. - Sue Kelly
