VFW 120th Orlando

120th VFW National Convention 



Orlando, Fla., was selected to host the 120th VFW National Convention, July 20-24, 2019.

Every year, thousands of VFW and Auxiliary delegates gather to represent the organization’s total membership of more than 1.6 million at the weeklong convention. While there, our mission is to approve new national priorities to guide our organization as we lobby Congress on issues important to the nation’s veterans, service members and their families.

This year, a number of distinguished guests and award recipients, as well as a number of elected officials from Florida appeared during the weeklong event. In addition to addresses by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Retired Lt. Gen. Chuck Horner and Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie, Retired Admiral Michelle Howard, DPAA Director Kelly McKeague and Retired Brig. Gen. Jack Hammond all received VFW national awards.
