VFW IN D.C.
The VFW is one of the most respected voices on Capitol Hill, and we'll never stop fighting for veterans' rights and benefits. When our nation's veterans stand with the VFW, our voice is amplified, and we can not be ignored.
We don’t wait to hear how legislation will affect veterans, service members and their families; we help shape it from the beginning. We actively lobby Congress and the administration on current veterans' issues and needs.
Filing a VA claim can be complicated and frustrating, and VFW Service Officers are here to help you cut through the VA's red tape. Each year they assist more than 125,000 veterans nationwide, garnering over $3 billion in compensation benefits.
We fought in uniform to keep our country safe. Today we continue that fight through our National Security and Foreign Affairs (NS&FA) program. Simply put, NS&FA works to maintain the integrity of our great nation.
The VFW’s Action Corps is the VFW's grassroots lobbying effort. Its members span the world, and work to inform and educate veterans and service members on the initiatives and policies that affect them.
