A Message from the Commander

Welcome and thank you for looking around.  Located in Startzville TX (Canyon Lake), we currently are a post of 208 members.

A Message from the Auxiliary President









President: Tessa Teel

                Auxiliary Life Member

                Comrade Gold Legacy Life Member


I first joined the Auxiliary in 2010 while living in New Mexico.  The Auxiliary there was in jeopardy of surrendering their Charter due to lack of participation.  I was asked to join and shortly thereafter I became President of the Auxiliary followed by District 2 President.  I had to crash course the bylaws and learn as I go.  It was that experience that opened my eyes to the value of the Auxiliary to any Post.  Their dedication to the Post and Veterans and their families is undying.

The Auxiliary is in desperate need of current and new members to participate in our events up to and including becoming officers.  Our membership is aging, and our fear is not existing due to lack of participation.  If you are interested in joining or helping, please stop by the post and let's talk.  You can also reach me at if you have any questions.

I am currently the VFW Post 8800 Auxiliary President and District 5 Auxiliary President.

I am also a VFW Gold Legacy Life Member currently serving as Post Quartermaster, Adjutant, and Service Officer.

It is my goal to work in harmony with both the Post and Auxiliary to help in any area I may be of service.  I welcome anyone to stand with us to support veterans, their families, and our community.
