Tried and true VFW

Posted: Thursday, November 29, 2018 8:53 am | Updated: 9:00 am, Thu Nov 29, 2018.

Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States is a non-profit veteran’s service organization comprised of eligible veterans and military members from the active, guard, and reserve forces.  Lineage can be traced back to 1899 when veterans of the Spanish-American War and the Philippine Insurrection founded numerous grassroots organizations to secure rights and benefits for injuries sustained during service. Left without formalized medical or psychological care, soldiers were often left alone to cope with the many injuries experienced as a result of their brave service. 

Some veterans banded together to create organizations what would eventually become known as the VFW. Early chapters included those formed in Ohio, Colorado, and Pennsylvania, and the organization now boasts more than 1.6 million members.
