The Post institution date was January 5, 1921 with 41 members, under the command of Glenn P. Wallace. The Auxiliary was instituted February 3, 1929, with 10 members. The Post was renamed to “Linn” in the 1920’s. The Auxiliary was known for its hospital work, making afghan blankets, table covers, and bibs for the Roseburg Hospital. In 1964 they placed first in the state Americanism work, and first in national for membership. They have placed first in national three times for radio activity.

The Post Department history was first written by Frank Folsom.
(INFORMATION FROM VFW ORIGINS) Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 584 is a Non-Profit Veterans organization that assists and provides services to local Veterans.
By the year 1960, then under the command of Jim L. Kelly, the Post finally had a standing building. It was a small old church relocated from Adair Village to its current location at 1469 Timber St in Albany, Oregon.
Since then, the building has been reconstructed and added on to where in the 1970’s Canteen wing was added and then again in 1978 the addition to extend a larger dining area and kitchen for Veteran events was built on.
In 2019 the newest generation of the nation’s defenders and auxiliary advocates started even more additions of a game room addition, reconstructed kids’ room with play structure, dining room, and canteen as the building sits today.
The Post celebrated its centennial on January 5th, 2021, but was delayed due to the global pandemic of COVID-19. The Post hopes to celebrate it fully On September 11th 2021.
VFW Post 584 is highly dedicated to the missions the National VFW puts forth in the Voice of Democracy, Patriot Pen, and all the Veteran outreach programs the VFW offers today. Along with the help of the Auxiliary and the PUP tent for the Cooties, the Post continues daily hospital care and veteran outreach within the community.
Since the beginning of the charter, the Post has had 87 great Commanders in office that have continued not only the great works of The Veterans of Foreign Wars on the national, state, and district levels, but also in their local communities. The Post looks forward to the next 100 years.

A Battle Buddy is a partner assigned to a soldier in the United States Army. Each battle buddy is expected to assist his or her partner both in and out of combat. A battle buddy is not only intended for company, but also for the reduction of suicide; since each keeps an eye on his or her partner's actions, a battle buddy can save their fellow soldier's life by noticing negative thoughts and feelings and intervening to provide help.
To a veteran a mission is everything. It's an objective, purpose or a desired outcome based on success. Our mission is simple, here at Battle Buddy Clothing Company, we are proudly veteran owned. We believe strongly in the "Battle Buddy" mentality. Our mission is to continually strive to make new connections with our fellow veterans, our customers and our community. It is our desire to ensure continued service to our great country.
Giving back is the number 1 way to thank the generations of veterans that have come before us.
According to the most recent study, we as a nation lose more then 22 veterans to suicide every day.
Along with volunteering in our communities, a portion of each sale is given to veteran organizations that put on events for veterans and their families, because just one meaningful connection can save a life.
