VETERANS & MILITARY SUPPORT PROGRAMS
Veterans & Military Support is part of the VFW’s never-ending obligation to assist members of the active-duty military, National Guard and Reserves, as well as their families.

The VFW is is on of the most respected voices in Washington D.C. and within local governments across America. We advocate for justice for our nation's veterans, service members and military families on an array of issues and continue to be the voice for veterans everywhere. We regularly testify before Congress, meet with elected officials and rally our national supporters to ensure our lawmakers put veterans first.
