    The VFW holds the resilience and dedication of today's military family in the highest
    esteem. These families believe in something larger than themselves, and their
    selflessness is inspiring. we're doing even more to ensure not a single service member,
    veteran, or their families fall through the cracks. Whether you or your family need the
    opportunity to call home more often, or a deployment has caused financial strain, our
    organization and others can help.

    Working alongside Amerca’s youth and instilling a sense of patriotism has always been
    — and will always be — a VFW priority.
    The VFW knows how important community service is to America, with volunteerism
    benefiting education, the environment, health sciences and civic projects.

    Our Buddy Poppy Program compensates the veterans who assemble the poppies and
    provides financial assistance in maintaining state and national veterans' rehabilitation
    and service programs. There is an Annual Buddy Poppy Display contest where art is
    made out of the Poppies. Get together with your Post to submit a Display.

    The VFW works closely with other national organizations, such as:
    Boy Scouts of America,
    Citizen Corps,
    March of Dimes,
    America's Promise-The Alliance for Youth,
    and many others.

    USO provides VFW members with additional opportunities to volunteer in their
    communities and give back to our troops and their families.

    Each year VFW and Ladies Auxiliary members donate more than 11 million volunteer
    hours and $50 million to community service projects. Contact your Post to get volunteer
    opportunities information.
