POST HISTORY

The Grand Opening of the new instituted post home for Superstition Mountain Post 9399 was held at Ocotillo Road and the Apache Trail on November 29th, 1964. This event attracted several top Department Officers in the V.F.W. The new post was originally installed in February 1964 at the Ocotillo site. A new location was then purchased on August 19, 1965 to build a new post at 133 N. Saguaro Road and Apache Trail in Apache Junction, Arizona. The land was purchased for $22,500. The post moved to the new location, September 18th, 1965 and was honored at their Grand Opening. The 1964 Grand opening event was special, since it was historical (the first V.F.W. Post in District #4 in Apache Junction). The land was  paid off in 1968.

The membership for the Post and Ladies Auxiliary was approximately 420 members and was recorded as very active in supporting the V.F.W. Programs and the local community.

District #4 had eight (8) Ladies Auxiliaries, which were: Post 1677 Casa Grande, Post 1760 Mesa , Post 3513 Scottsdale, Post 3632 Tempe, Post 3713 Coolidge, Post 9399 Apache Junction, Post 9400 Sunnyslope, Post 9833 Deer Valley.

In 1988-89 under the State Commandership of Don Maynard, District #4 was split up and a new District was added, which was District #10 and Posts 9399, 1677, 3713, 8053, 7401 and 7968 were assigned to this newly created District. Posts 1760, 3513, 3632, 9400 and 9833 were left in District #4.

Post 9399 has been, over the years, a very progressive post and should be proud of its status in Arizona. The listed past Post Commanders and Auxiliary Presidents are as follows:
