Major Abraham J. Baum Post 7766, Rancho Bernardo, CA - History

  Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, Post 7766, was established in Rancho Bernardo, California on Armed Forces Day, May 17, 1986. The Post was founded with 86 original area member veterans who had served honorably in World War II, Korea, and Viet Nam. The goals, common with the national organization, were for the assurance of veterans' benefits, family aid, participation in community activities and fostering work with area youth to promote patriotism.

  The original officers were: Commander Clifford Carr, Sr Vice Commander Thaddeus Kmieciak, Jr Vice Commander Jack C. Kelly, Quartermaster Phil Bishop, Adjutant Robert Ingalls, Chaplain Robert L. Thomas, Surgeon Dorothy Crumpler, 1st Trustee Murray Kaminer, 2nd Trustee Ernest Ewbank, 3rd Trustee Alfred Blumenfield and Judge Advocate Louis J. Kabell.

In mid-2023, the Abraham J. Baum VFW Post 7766 made the decision to merge with the Escondido Post 1513 due to declining membership in the RB Post. All 7766 members have had their membership converted to membership in Post 1513. More information is available at their web site. Click Here.
