About VFW Post 970

Welcome to the Colonel Horace Hickam Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 970. Chartered on Hickam AFB, Hawaii in 1980, we are the most active VFW Post in the state of Hawaii.

A large portion of our membership comes from the National Guard, Reserve, and Active Duty members working on Hickam AFB, Pearl Harbor, and Fort Shafter. The other big part of our membership comes from the Veterans’ community living in the surrounding area.
