Celebrate VFW Day
Join us in celebrating 113 years of service
September 27, 2012
Each year on September 29, VFW Day is celebrated at Posts and in
communities around the world. It’s a day devoted to the organization and its
dedicated members who are so deeply committed to serving those who bravely
serve this nation.
This year marks the 113th year since the VFW was
established. On September 29, 1899, a small group of Spanish-America war veterans
joined together to form what would become the nation’s largest and most
dedicated group of combat veterans.
For 113 years the VFW has been unwavering in its devotion to
our nation’s heroes. Whether it’s the fight for healthcare for veterans,
education for veterans or legislation for veterans, No One Does More For Veterans!
VFW and its Auxiliary members carry out this mission every single
day. Their commitment is demonstrated through national veterans and legislative
services, military assistance and community service programs, youth activities
and scholarship programs, as well as millions of volunteer hours in their local
communities each year.
your support by honoring all members and veterans in your community. Everyone is
invited to celebrate the tradition of continuous service and steadfast devotion
that defines the VFW.
