The VFW has been the heart and soul of the veteran community and a Westport institution since 1920. Named for World War I veteran, Private Joseph J. Clinton from Westport who was killed in France just 4 days before the armistice. VFW Post 399 has occupied a couple of different sites in Westport prior to moving to the present Riverside Avenue location at the junction of Saugatuck Avenue, across from Treadwell Avenue in 1973.
The Joseph J. Clinton VFW Post 399 is committed to making a meaningful and positive contribution to the veterans and families that have served our country with honor. We strongly support other veteran organizations to help build bridges and improve the lives of veterans throughout the community. We are part of the national Veterans of Foreign Wars organization and are a 501(c)(19) Non Profit charity.
Here is the Bio of Private Joseph Jerome Clinton:
