For 110 years, the VFW has been serving America’s troops and veterans, protecting their rights and helping heroes in times of need.
More than 1.7 million men and women have served in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Many are returning home every day desperately in need of assistance to get back on their feet, reclaim their lives and rebuild their families. The VFW exists to ensure that our heroes receive the benefits they have earned and deserve. Help that meets the everyday needs of our troops and their families. When our troops are separated from their loved ones, we help connect them. When their homes are in danger of foreclosure, we’re there to assist. And the medical care of America’s finest is always on our mind. Our programs remind the millions of troops, veterans and family members that America is grateful for their service.
