back to 1899 when veterans of the Spanish-American War (1898) and the
Philippine insurrection (1899-1902) founded local organizations to secure
rights and benefits for their service.
The VFW provides
numerous services to military service members and their families.
• MAP has helped
fund Farewell and Welcome Home gatherings for military units worldwide.
• Operation Uplink provides free, pre-paid phone cards to service members.
• Unmet Needs can give a one-time grant up to $1,500 for qualifying service members and their families experiencing financial hardship.
Flags and flag education
are essential elements of the VFW's Citizenship Education program.

action targeted toward maintaining a strong national defense and improving
military benefits and quality of life for all veterans, including those
currently serving in the active-duty military, the National Guard and the Reserves.
One of the VFW's most
successful legislative push was making college education affordable for
military service members with the signing of the 1944 Gl Bill of Rights, and in
1984, the signing of the Montgomery GI Bill.
For more than 75 years,
