The Veteran's of Foreign Wars of the United States, with it's Auxiliaries, includes 2.2 million member's in approximately 8,100 Posts worldwide.
It's mission is to "honor the dead by helping the living"
The VFW traces it's roots back to 1899 when veterans of the Spanish-American War and the Philippine Insurrection (1899-1902( founded local organizations to secure rights and benefits for their service;Many arrived home wounded or sick. There was no medical care or veteran's pension for them, and they were left to care for themselves.
In their misery, some of these veterans banded together and formed  organizations with what  would become known as the  " Veteran's of Foreign Wars of United States." 
Annually, VFW member's and it's auxiliary contribute more than 13 million hours of volunteerism in the community.
