Welcome to the George Edward White Post 56 Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States. 

We are a historic Post. Located in Leavenworth, Kansas, we are one of the oldest VFW Post in Kansas and are located in the first city in Kansas. Our Post is within walking distance from the original Lewis and Clark route; we are near both the old Oregon and Santa Fe Trails. Our membership list of active and deceased combat veterans dates back to the Spanish American War of 1898. Fort Leavenworth is located within a few blocks of our Post and is the oldest military installation west of the Mississippi River. Located on the high bluffs over the Missouri River, Ft. Leavenworth's architecture is a blended mix of stately, red-brick homes and impressive modern brick facilities. A walk along Ft. Leavenworth's bluffs takes one past displays of civil war cannon and offers an incredible view of the Missouri River valley. 

We are a modern Post. Many of our current combat veteran members are active duty personnel stationed at Fort Leavenworth. We are a Post with a rich mix of life experience and sense of selfless service. We have combat veteran members whose service in the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines and Navy is of today or was of yesterday or of yesteryear. We are a post that is committed to serving veterans and our local community. 

We offer a wide variety of things to do and we offer support. Whether you need a large room for an "off-site" meeting, our Post Hall for a party or just the opportunity to sit in the club and visit with others, like yourself, who are combat vets and who have been "down-range", we can assist.
