About the VFW

VFW Motto: Pro Deo Pro Patria  (For God, For Country) 

Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, Inc. is a federally chartered corporation formed in Columbus, Ohio, on September 29, 1899, by Spanish American War veterans of the Seventeenth U. S. Infantry. The basic aims of the VFW are to ensure the national security through maximum military strength, to speed the rehabilitation of the nations disabled and needy veterans, to assist veterans' widows and orphans and the dependents of needy or disabled veterans, and to promote Americanism by means of education in patriotism and by constructive service to communities. The VFW maintains both its legislative service and the central office of its national rehabilitation service in Washington, D.C. The latter nationwide program serves disabled veterans of all wars, members and nonmembers alike, in matters of government compensation and pension claims, hospitalization, civil-service employment preference, and so on. The VFW has more than 10,000 local units, which are known as posts.

The VFW welcomes all who meet our eligibility criteria. It is through service to this country that our membership has earned their elite status. If you have received a campaign medal for overseas service; have served 30 consecutive or 60 non-consecutive days in Korea; or have ever received hostile fire or imminent danger pay, then you are eligible.
