The American flag does not fly because the wind moves past it.
The American flag flies from the last breath of each military member who has died protecting it.
 American soldiers don't fight because they hate what's in front of them - they fight because they love what's behind them.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) celebrates years of tradition, community service and veterans’ service.

In 1899, the American  Veterans of Foreign Service (Columbus, Ohio) and the National Society of the Army of the Philippines (Denver, Colorado) were organized independent of each other to secure rights and benefits for veterans of the Spanish American War (1898) and the Philippines War (1899-1902).

The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States came into existence when these two organizations; sharing similar ideals and requirements for membership, merged in 1914. The VFW was chartered by Congress in 1936 and continues its rich tradition in enhancing the lives of millions through its community service programs and special projects.

The VFW, with its Auxiliaries, includes 2.6 million members in approximately 9,000 Posts worldwide. Our accomplishments are many, including lobbying for a GI bill for the 20th century; donating more than $1 million each to the Vietnam, Korean, Women in the Service and World War II memorials; fighting for compensation to veterans diagnosed with Gulf War Syndrome; and improving VA medical centers services for women veterans.

Annually, VFW members and its Ladies Auxiliary contribute more than 13 million hours of volunteerism in the community, including participation in Make a Difference Day and National Volunteer Week.

From providing $2.5 million in college scholarships to high school students every year, providing free phone cards to our nation's active-duty military personnel, raising money for the World War II Memorial, to encouraging elevation of the Veterans Administration to the president's cabinet, the VFW is there--honoring the dead by helping the living.

Our meetings are held on the second Monday of each month at 1900 Hours.


Are fraternal, patriotic, historical and educational:

To preserve and strengthen comradeship among its members:

To assist worthy comrades:

To perpetuate the memory and history of our dead, and to assist their widows and orphans:

To maintain true allegiance to the government of the United States of America, and fidelity to its constitution and laws:

To foster true patriotism:

To maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom:

And to preserve and defend the United States from all her enemies, whomsoever.

The Soldier stood and faced God,
which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining,
just as brightly as his brass.
'Step forward now, Soldier,
how shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?'

The soldier squared his shoulders and said,
'no, Lord, I guess I ain't.
Because those of us who carry guns,
can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was tough.
And sometimes I've been violent,
because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny,
that wasn't mine to keep.
Though I worked a lot of overtime,
when the bills got just too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,
though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God, forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place,
among the people here.
They never wanted me around,
except to calm their fears
If you've a place for me here, Lord,
it needn't be so grand.

I never expected or had too much,
but if you don't, I'll understand.
There was a silence all around the throne,
where the saints had often trod.

As the Soldier waited quietly,
for the judgment of his God.
'Step forward now, you Soldier,
you've borne your burdens well.

Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
you've done your time in Hell.'
