Here at Hafa Adai VFW Post 1509, we are driven by a single goal: to do our part to help our island's Veterans and their families. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting those that have assisted us all. We provide many support programs and local scholarship opportunities to our Active Duty, Guard, and Reserve Military Members as well as their family.

"THE SOLDIER IS THE ARMY. NO ARMY IS BETTER THAN ITS SOLDIERS. THE SOLDIER IS ALSO A CITIZEN. IN FACT, THE HIGHEST OBLIGATION AND PRIVILEGE OF CITIZENSHIP IS THAT OF BEARING ARMS FOR ONE’S COUNTRY."
