  Mission of the Post.

Ole Beck VFW Post 209 was chartered in 1921. It was established to provide a means for Veteran's to help their fellow veterans in their time of need. The post has an Honor Guard which provides a firing party and a bugler for funerals held at the Western Montana Veteran Cemetery.

History of the Post.

The Post was named after Private Ole Beck. He was 28 years old when he died. He deployed from his home in Polson in early December 1917.He served with the Thirteenth Company, Second Motor Mechanics, Signal Corps from Camp Merrit, New Jersey. Ole was born in Sweden and had made his home in Missoula and the vicinity for 16 years. He left with his Company on the 1st of March. He died in France on the 26th of March 1918 after a short illness with Diphtheria. His Funeral service was conducted on the 24th of April at the Swedish Lutheran Church in Missoula. The service was conducted by Rev T.V. Anderson and was attended by the Commanding Officer of Ft Missoula. There was a special street car service set aside for those who wanted to attend the service. Private Beck was the brother of Mrs. Caroline Driscoll who resided in Missoula at the time.
