History of the Post:

Sgt. Charles A. Fricke Post 8475 formed in East St. Louis, Illinois, by veterans working at Aluminum Company of America who fought in World War II. The name for the Post was selected by putting the names of the 19 employees who died in World War II in a hat and Sgt. Charles A. Fricke was drawn.  VFW Post 805 moved to East St. Louis in 1951.  Sgt. Fricke Post 8475 in East St. Louis burnt down in 1980. 

In 1981 the building at 221-223 West First Street, O'Fallon, Illinois was purchased and opened their doors 1 December

VFW Post 805 sold their building in East St. Louis, Illinois and consolidated with VFW Post 8475 to become Sgt. Charles A. Fricke VFW Post 805, O'Fallon, Illinois on 29 April 1987.
