VFW Post 9997

(Sheffield, Kansas City, MO)

Scooter’s 933rd bar, first visited in 2011.

I’ve known about this VFW for a couple of years, and chose this year’s Veterans Day (11/11/11) to pay it a visit.

This was a really friendly dive bar, and I was welcomed in. There was a Veterans Day buffet taking place. From what I can tell, despite its remote and sketchy location (it’s next to a huge tire dump), this VFW is very active in the community.

Apart from the bar (which only has Budweiser on tap but has several other domestics in cans and bottles), there’s a pool table, a juke box, lottery tickets, Silver Strike, and a MegaTouch game. In the back there is a banquet/reception hall.

As is customary when I am able to get to a VFW or American Legion on November 11, I bought a round for the bar and shook the hands of several veterans before leaving.
