No One Does More for Veterans
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.  Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the war on terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.
 

DONATE TO THE VFW

Our programs support our service members while they are on the front line, as they are being discharged and long after they return. Your tax-deductible donation will be immediately directed to the VFW programs where your support is most urgently needed.

Veterans Restorative Justice Act needs to pass

On Monday, July 20th, 2020, Veterans were let down by the Minnesota Legislators when they did not pass the Veterans Restorative Justice Act. However, it is believed that this will come back up during a third special session sometime around August 13th, 2020. It is time for all Veterans and all those that support Veterans to get the word out to our leaders that this bill must pass. The time is now to contact your legislators in Minnesota and let them know that you support the Veterans Restorative Justice Act.
