The Batavia Overseas Post 1197, VFW, in Batavia Illinois has grown from a small group of men who met in Batavia City Hall in 1935 to become one of the nation's outstanding community veteran organizations. This has been accomplished due to the devotion, leadership, sacrifice and support of its members and the generous support of the community it serves.
