Veterans in the Classroom
The VFW strives to thank America's educators by providing them with helpful resources and encouraging VFW members to visit local classrooms. Let the VFW help educate America's future leaders and bring history to life!
Veterans play an important role in educating our nation's youth about the founding principles upon which America was founded. As combat veterans, VFW members can provide students with a unique perspective about the sacrifices America's service members make to maintain freedom for all of us.
When visiting a classroom, a VFW member will prepare a brief introduction, a main presentation and a Q&A session. Depending on the topic, a member may bring appropriate memorabilia, uniforms, photographs and other relevant material.
American history is something we all share, and there's no one better to help tell that story than someone who's had a great part in shaping it.
Contact your local VFW Post to arrange for a veteran to visit your classroom. VFW members and Posts interested in becoming active with their local schools can get tips and suggestions here.
