No One Does More For Veterans In the Texas Hill Country!
VFW Post 688, located in Boerne, Texas, received its Charter in 1936.  The Post is named in honor of Private Bruno Phillip, a Boerne native and eldest son of Julius Phillip.  At the age of 30, Phillip volunteered to serve as an Infantryman in the U.S. Army during the First World War.  He was killed in action on September 3rd, 1918, during the Saint Mihiel Offensive in France.

Post 688 has over 200 members who collectively represent service to our nation in every conflict from World War II through Operation Inherent Resolve. Post 688 hosts and participates in more than forty community events throughout the year including parades, commemorations, school visits, and other events to honor veterans and our military, and to educate the community about important dates related to historical military actions that preserved the freedoms Americans enjoy today.


Our programs support our service members while they are on the front line, as they are being discharged and long after they return. Your tax-deductible donation will be immediately directed to the VFW programs where your support is most urgently needed.
