America's Post

Founded in 1934, John Lyon VFW Post 3150 has been serving our Nation’s veterans, promoting Americanism, and committed to our community for over 82 years.  At John Lyon, our history and traditions are important to us, but we pride ourselves with being one of the most innovative and active Veteran Service Organizations in the National Capital Region.  As the closest VFW Post to Arlington National Cemetery, and many of our nation's most historic monuments, we consider it a sacred honor to be able to serve our active duty service members who stand guard over those hollowed grounds and who have buried many of our brothers and sisters. 

The Future's Post

At 3150, you’ll find that we’re different than most Posts.  We are steadfast in our mission to develop the next generation of veteran leadership and that’s why we boast one of the youngest Posts in Virginia, with an officer corps of primarily Iraq and Afghanistan veterans.  We have new ideas to help modernize the VFW and bring it into the 21st century.  At the core of our mission is partnering with other Veteran Service Organizations.  We firmly believe we can best meet the needs of our veterans and community through partnership, not competition.
