The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States is a nonprofit veterans service organization comprised of eligible veterans and military service members from the active, guard and reserve forces. We have many programs and services that work to support veterans, service members and their families, as well as communities worldwide.
Our Auxiliary set out to serve the veterans of this country and our communities in honor of the sacrifices and commitment of every man and woman who has served in uniform. Our members are the relatives of those who have served in overseas combat, who volunteer millions of hours and fund-raise millions of dollars for charitable projects that benefit veterans, military service personnel and their families.
