Celebrate VFW Day

Join us in celebrating 113 years of service

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.

Show 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.
