Private Walter J. Smith

Our Post is located on 41 Veterans Drive in New Britain, Connecticut. Our Charter was formed on October 5, 1920 and is named in honor of Private Walter J. Smith.
 
 
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group. Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the war on terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.
