POST HISTORY

The Woodlands VFW Post 12024 is the youngest Post in Texas District 17. It was started in 2004 by a few men and women that wanted to make a difference in the Volunteering Community within the VFW. The Auxiliary 12024 followed a year later.

The Post was small in the number of members, but that didn't hinder them from having great success.  Within the first six years of existence, the Post achieved All-American Status twice with Post Commander Norm Brawner and Post Commander Lee Derby leading the way.

The Woodlands VFW Post has achieved All-State Post 6 consecutive years and being well represented at the District level as Norm Brawner and Lee Derby both served as District 17 Commander.  Carl Smith led the Post to All-State for the 2011/2012 year.  Judy Brawner of the Auxiliary served as District 17 President and led the Auxiliary 12024 as President for 5 years.

In 2009, The Woodlands VFW Post became the first Post in Texas to sponsor a VFW Motorcycle Group. These same members that started this Post, made Texas history and started this new group within the Post, again having much success within the VFW. In this same year, this small Post and Auxiliary received the National Community Service Award for their work in the community and with the local homeless Veterans organizations.

The dedication of each member in this Post and Auxiliary continues to echo the strengths of the history of the Post.
