WELCOME TO PLACER FOOTHILLS

Veterans Serving Veterans and the Community
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.
 
Placer Foothills Post 904 encourages all veterans to be active in the community via Veterans, community based organizations, church and/or youth group efforts.
 
As Veterans we can use our experiences to enhance society and provide incite to fellow human beings.
