What the VFW Does

The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States (commonly known as the VFW) has the top priority of providing support to our Service Members, Veterans, and their families.

Our Goal

The VFW is an organization of Veterans whose goal is to “Honor the dead by helping the living.”

  • VFW Training Hub

    A brand-new feature available to help VFW members learn the many aspects of our organization is the newly released VFW leadership and program training videos.

    Simply access them by using your member logon. They can be found under a new tab titled VFW TRAINING HUB located in the General Member and Tool Resources section. Current topics include Administrative, Post Service Officer, Program and (later today) Membership Recruiting. The VFW Training Hub will be continually expanded and updated with other video topics. Please be sure to pass this important information along.

Founded in 1899 and chartered by Congress in 1936, the VFW is the nation’s largest organization of war veterans and its oldest major veterans’ organization. With nearly 1.9 million VFW and Auxiliary members located in almost 7,000 Posts worldwide, “NO ONE DOES MORE FOR VETERANS.”

The  Dept of TN Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States is a nonprofit veterans’ service organization comprised of combat veterans and eligible military service members from the active, Guard and Reserve forces. We are pleased to bring you this site. We created it to bring information to more vets than we could by traditional means.

The VFW and its Auxiliaries are dedicated to veterans’ service, legislative advocacy, and military and community service programs worldwide. For more information, please browse our website here at www.tnvfw.org.

If you’d like information on joining the TN VFW or one of Tennessee’s Post, please Contact Us.

 As the nation’s oldest major veterans’ organization, the VFW has an impeccable and longstanding record of service and stewardship. More than 4 million patriotic Americans, both members and non-members, entrust the VFW with financial contributions and dedicate millions of volunteer hours.

Over the last decade, approximately 80% of support received from VFW members and patriotic Americans was applied directly to veterans service, community service, legislative advocacy and military service programs worldwide.

Honoring Disabled Vets through:

Special Events

VFW sponsors special trips for Purple Heart recipients. Past events include “Return to Vietnam” and other events.

Disabled Veterans Hunt

VFW annually pays travel expenses for four Vietnam War veteran amputees, who sustained their wounds in combat, to go to a hunting lodge in Montana for an antelope hunt. In addition, VFW picks up the tab for three of the vets’ lodging, meals and the accompanying hunting-guide services.

Memorials

In fulfilling its pledge to remember the nation’s war dead, VFW promotes national memorials for veterans of all wars. Additionally, thousands of memorials have been constructed across the nation through local VFW Posts.

Community

The true character of America is measured by her communities and the people who work to improve them. VFW members and other patriotic Americans dedicate millions of hours each year working to spread patriotism and honor our nation’s heroes.
