About the Veterans of Foreign Wars

The VFW traces its roots back to 1899 when veterans of the Spanish-American War and the Philippine Insurrection founded local organizations to secure rights and benefits for their service.  These chapters were merged in 1914 to form the VFW which was incorporated in 1918.  There are currently 1.4 million men and women who belong to the VFW.
