Welcome to the VFW Bruce Post


In April of 1934 four men felt the prospering village of St. Clair Shores should be represented by a Veterans organization.  The men were Bill Randall, Joe Dendoven, Leo Delo, and Charlie Pasters.  There was some indecision as to whether they should be American Legion or Veterans of Foreign Wars.

Since Joe Dendoven was a member of the Fairview Post and Bill Randall was a member of the Alger Post, the decision was swayed toward a V.F.W.  These four men held meetings in Leo’s garage while they recruited more members.  Later they moved their meetings to St. Clair Shores Inn.  These meetings were primarily of organizational purposes.  On the 21st of August with 57 members they drew up and submitted a charter to form a V.F.W. post based on the inactive half-way post #1146 of East Detroit, which explains why our post number is comparatively low.

The following year Walter F. Bruce, who was a charter member, died.  Being the first member of the newly formed post to pass away, the remaining members decided to name the post after him, hence the name Corporal Walter F. Bruce Post #1146
