The purpose of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States is to preserve and support the patriotic and historical interests of our country, our communities and our veterans; to strengthen the common bonds of the men and women who have served and who are currently serving in our military; to assist them and their families; to enhance their quality of life; and to maintain true allegiance to the Constitution and laws of the United States of America and defend her from all enemies, whomsoever.

We will accomplish our mission by:
• Perpetuating the memory and history of our dead through public and private acts of remembrance;
• Preserving and defending the honor, integrity and rights of all veterans and those currently serving in the military;
• Fostering patriotism through education and volunteerism within the community; and
• Advocating for a strong national defense.

In 1899, the American Veterans of Foreign Service (Columbus, Ohio) and the National Society of the Army of the Philippines (Denver, Colo.) were organized to secure rights and benefits for veterans of the Spanish-American War (1898) and the Philippines War (1899-1902). These two organizations merged in 1914, creating the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States. VFW was chartered by Congress in 1936.
