"Support our Veterans"
The Waverly Area Veterans Post, established in 2009, is embarking on the final phase of its capital campaign to construct a new Veterans Center in Waverly Iowa to serve over 1,700 Bremer County Veterans and their families. Under the dynamic leadership of Marv Schumacher, President of Schumacher Elevator, a third generation, world-wide company, as well as the capital campaign cabinet composed of business and community leaders, the group is working to raise funds the final $1.8M of $3.6M Capital Campaign for a new veteran facility that will bring American Legion, AMVETS Post 79, Marine Corps League and VFW Post 2208 together under one roof.
The Waverly Area Veterans Post brings together the four veterans organizations in the City of Waverly, Iowa:
American Legion Post #176 | AMVETS Post #79 | Marine Corps League Detachment #1241 | Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #2208
One Alliance with Four Posts — each Post charter remaining intact.
Necessity: The flood waters of 2008 destroyed one of the three veteran facilities in Waverly, seriously damaged a second, and the third building (the VFW) has outlived its useful life.
Location: The current VFW site in northwest Waverly, overlooking the Cedar River.
One Point of Contact: The new welcoming service facility will become the contact point to address the needs of all veterans, active and inactive, and their families.
A Unique Project: To our knowledge, the Waverly Area Veterans Post is the first attempt to bring four separate veterans organizations together under one roof in the State of Iowa and has already become a working model for other communities.
Funds Raised as of 8/15/2013: The WAVP has 437 Donors for a total gifted or pledged in the amount of $1,339,545.

This new Veterans' Service Center honors the Veterans of yesterday, today and tomorrow. It recognizes and celebrates the sacrifice of those who served in past conflicts, those who serve today, and those whose service awaits them. These men and women and their families are ever mindful of the reality that freedom is not free.
It is in this spirit that we build this very special home
