Welcome to the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Department of Florida. The VFW was founded on July 27, 1931 to assure those who have protected our country are protected in return. This comes in the form of patriotic programs, reaching out with help in communities across America, and being an advocate for veteran’s entitlements both in Tallahassee and in Washington, D.C.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars was originally founded in 1899 as the American Veterans of Foreign Service, the VFW continues to be a voice for veterans, currently deployed members of our Armed Forces and their families.
The VFW and its Auxiliaries are located in 8,500 VFW Posts around the world. We are at heart an organization dedicated to providing a place for all of those who have sacrificed in our nations’s conflicts abroad. While we are a national organization, we express this dedication through our local posts and programs to support veterans service members and their families.
We extend an invitation to join, our most prestigious organization and take part in the caring for our Warriors of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Welcome to the 2015-2016 term of the Florida VFW!
