Pearland Armed Forces Day- May 20th
The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7109 has been a fixture of Pearland’s veteran community for over 40 years. In addition to the VFW, the Post is also home to the American Legion and the Disabled American Veteran Charity, a nonprofit charity that provides a lifetime of support for veterans of all generations and their families.

This collective group of veterans:
 Provides an Honor Guard during Veteran funerals
 Transports disable veterans to medical appointments to and from the VA
 Hosts annual fundraisers whose proceeds are given back to Veterans’ Charities
 Partnered with the 100 Club of Pearland to raise funds for Fallen Pearland PD Officer, Endy Ekpanya
 Participates as Color Guard for community events
 Provides formal and informal counseling to combat veterans

To have this multitude of services available for veterans under one roof is extremely rare. Unfortunately, the roof they are housed under is in severe disrepair and is in need of replacement. The Pearland Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Pearland Class is joining forces with community leaders and veterans to host Pearland Armed Forces Day to raise funds for this purpose on Saturday, May 20th at the VFW - 4202 W Walnut St.
