The post was named in honor of two servicemembers from the McFarland area who served in World War I and World War II respectively. Alvin Edwards died on October 16, 1917 in France of pneumonia complicated by 3 wounds of fragments of a bursting shell. He enlisted in the Marine Corps at the beginning of World War I and took part in severe battles of the American cause, which resulted in his promotion to Corporal. Private First Class Steven A. Foye was a United States Marine who was killed in action on September 19, 1944 in the Pacific on Peleliu in the Palau Islands.
