Welcome to the Westport VFW

About the Post

Established by eleven World War 1 veterans, VFW Post 399 has been the heart and soul of the veteran community and a Westport institution since April 27th 1920.  Named for World War 1 veteran, Private Joseph J. Clinton from Westport who was killed in France just 4 days before the armistice. It wasn’t until March of 1948 that the Post had a permanent home in Westport.  On this date, Mrs. Augusta Clinton Gaffney bequeath, in her will, her home and property on South Compo Road to VFW Post 399.  Mrs. Gaffney was the mother of Private Joseph J. Clinton. VFW Post 399 relocated to the present Riverside Avenue location at the junction of Saugatuck Avenue, across from Treadwell Avenue in 1971.


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. To view more of our history, please click here.
