Celebrating 100th Year
Post 144 is celebrating its centennial year as part of the U.S. Veterans of Foreign Wars. In 1921, North End WWI Veterans formed Post 144. Ever since then, the Post has continued to honor and remember North End Veterans from WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and the more recent conflicts.
The Post 144 members conduct a remembrance ceremony in the “Paul Revere Mall” to honor North End Veterans, and all Veterans, on Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
As part of the North End and Boston community, Post 144 gives support to “Local Veterans Services,” and provides charitable contributions to “North End Community Organizations.”
The current Post Commander is Mr. Leo Egan.
