WELCOME TO GREATER ABSECON ISLAND VFW POST 215

Teamwork - Leadership - Committment
Greater Absecon Island Post 215 is located at 601 N. Dorset Avenue in Ventnor Heights, Ventnor, NJ.

We host an active Auxiliary Chapter who play an integral role in our fundraising efforts.
 
Our Post was re-chartered in August of 2014 as a result of the merger of the Atlantic City  (formerly Lt. J. Willis Gale) Post 215 and the Ventnor (formerly Turner-Bunting-Durkin) Post 3361. The building itself was built as a VFW Post by WWI and WWII veterans in the early 50's and has been active in the local community ever since.
