Serving the Berkshires since 1922.

Bossidy-Crerar Post 893 in Lee, Massachusetts is one of the oldest VFW Posts in the Berkshires. After receiving our charter on March 10, 1922 our post was aptly named in remembrance of two sons-of-Lee who were killed in the Ardennes region of France in 1918. They both served in the newly formed 82nd Division, known today as the 82nd Airborne.

We have been proud to serve our community and veterans for over a century.
