VFW POST 11447 - Paul P. Busek

On September 1992, the first Post meeting was held at Blue Jeans Bar in Barrio Barretto, Subic Bay , Philippines. Through the hardwork and determination of the veterans, Post 1147 Paul P. Busek was established.

Paul P. Busek was selected as the namesake of the Post. He was a friend and inspiration to many of our members during his life in the Navy here in the Philippines.

Establishment of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #11447, Barrio Barretto, Philippines was reported in October issue of VFW magazine of the same year.
