As yesterday’s defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today’s military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.

WWII
Korean War
Vietnam War
Persian Gulf War
  Kosovo
War in Afghanistan
War in Iraq
War on Global Terror

and other Peace-Keeping Expeditionary Campaigns throughout the globe.

 

"Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over". With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!!

If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.

VFW to Deliver Veterans’ Voice to Congress

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Next weekend, more than 500 members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S., the nation’s largest and oldest war veterans’ organization begin rallying in Washington, D.C., to voice the concerns of veterans directly with the nation’s lawmakers during the 2017 VFW Legislative Conference, Feb. 26 – March 2.

   
 
   

VFW Salutes United States Army for 241 Years of Service
Our nation’s soldiers are America’s true heroes.
 
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – June 14, 2016, marks the 241st year of service from the United States Army. The U.S. Army has evolved drastically since it was originally organized as the Continental Army in 1775; battlefields have transformed, weaponry has evolved, faces have come and gone, military uniforms have varied, but one thing holds fast: the bravery and the heart of the individuals who wear the uniform, and their commitment to their mission.

   
 
   
 
 
   
 

What Others are Saying

 

The Officers

 
       
 
That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. -  President Abraham Lincoln

 

 

A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way. ~John Maxwell
