If you live in or around the North Ridgeville area, you have most likely seen the North Ridgeville VFW Post 9871 Honor Guard bus carrying its dedicated Veterans to one of the many local military funerals where they honor our Lorain and Cuyahoga County heroes.
You may also have seen them at the Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery in Rittman, Ohio, where they periodically volunteer their Honor Guard services for the day – usually providing honors at more than ten funerals, and in all kinds of weather.
These servicemen provide for their lost comrades, the utmost respect and honor they deserve for the sacrifice they gave to our country.  If you are a VFW Post Member and wish to join our Honor Guard, please send us an email and the Honor Guard Captain will connect with you soon.



There is a regular meeting April 15th at 8pm. We will have nominations and elections and installation at that meeting. We will comply with social distancing  and have just an informal meeting. If you have questions please call me 216 403-1292.
