The VFW is calling for the U.S. Senate to finally pass H.R. 299, the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act of 2018, which would end the injustice of denying Vietnam, Korean DMZ and Thailand veterans who suffer from life-threatening health conditions related to exposure to Agent Orange the care and benefits they deserve.

The Vietnam War veteran who founded Sport Clips Haircuts handed over a check for $1.35 million to the VFW Foundation this morning to support Help A Hero Scholarships for active-duty U.S. service members and veterans. We'd like to thank Sport Clips for their support over the last decade, it's great to see all we can do #ForVeterans together!

We'd like to give a big shout-out to Texas VFW District 20, Humana and the San Antonio Food Bank for all their work on "March Out Hunger," a food drive which culminated on Veterans Day and raised a whopping 73,000 meals for their local community. Thank you to all those who teamed up in the fight against food insecurity!

It’s been 10 years since the first veterans treatment court started in Buffalo, N.Y., and Jack O’Connor is pleased with what he’s seen over the past decade. Veterans who would be in prison — and without treatment — are healing and rebuilding their lives.

“The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States was disappointed to learn about the 12-month delay in implementing this amazing benefit, but we recognize why hitting the reset button was necessary in order for the VA to get this right,” said VFW National Commander B.J. Lawrence in response to recent news that the VA has delayed implementing expected changes to the Forever GI Bill until next year.
