VFW Post 9400 was named in memory of Private Joseph F. Monfort, a native of Arizona and Regular Army Enlistee who gave his life to the Nation. Army Private Joseph F. Monfort was captured by the enemy when Corregidor fell May 6,1942 and died in a POW camp on January 17,1945. He is now buried at The National Cemetery of the Pacific, Honolulu, Hawaii. Since the post’s first Muster (April 16th, 1948) it has served as the premier meeting place in Phoenix for new and old Veterans alike. The torch has been passed through 5 war generations keeping its focus of providing a trusted space for camaraderie and support for the community.
Post 9400 has served the Veteran community and the community at large for over 75 years. Our Post was chartered on June 2, 1947, and the first phase of our building was completed in September 1948.
