<p>Post 2422 of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) is located on Orange Avenue, adjacent to Spreckels Park. This little haven of history and honor acts as a gathering spot and watering hole for local military members.&nbsp;</p> <p>As a national organization, the VFW fights to protect the rights and benefits of our nation's soldiers. Its history traces back to 1899, following the Spanish-American War and the Philippine Insurrection.</p> <p>Inside the local post, the walls are lined with memorabilia, and mini F-18s dangle from the ceiling. The club serves tacos and enchiladas every Friday afternoon. On the first and third Fridays of the month, the club offers a full dinner, one of which is hosted by the Ladies Auxiliary Club. There are hamburgers on Saturday and barbequed steak on Sunday, during the summer concerts in the park.</p> <p>The location also has a "canteen" with a full bar. But according to club bylaws, you must be a VFW member, or a guest of a member, in order to be served. The bar is a popular spot for watching sports games, especially during football season.</p> <p>Membership is available to any member of the military that has served in a foreign war, and membership rates vary. Meetings are held the third Wednesday of every month at 6:30pm.</p> <p>The canteen is open to the public on certain holidays including&nbsp;the Fourth of July and Memorial Day. While you're there, be sure to check out the Salute to Service Memorial Wall. Each tile represents a military member that has served this country honorably. The wall is located outside the building on Orange Avenue.&nbsp;</p>
