Members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) group today have a long tradition of volunteeringism in their communities. Not only have they served their country, but they continue to support their fellow veterans, spouse, and families by offering scholarships, career fairs, mental health services, and many other essential programs.
Since its inception, VFW membership has been instrumental in the establishment of the Veterans Administration, the establishment of the national cemetery system, and the passage of the GI Bill. Veterans are honored veterans and serve their families in their communities through the VFW. On National VFW Day, take a moment to appreciate all the VFW does in your neighborhood.

The VFW was established on September 29, 1899, by a group of veterans from the Spanish-American War and the Philippine Insurrection. It has since grown to be the country's largest group of combat veterans. They continue to "remember the dead by assisting the living." The VFW promotes patriotism, goodwill, and youth scholarships. They also provide military assistance and community service programs, promote youth involvement, and volunteer many hours in their local communities.
