VFW Fashion Show

The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, with its Auxiliaries, includes 2.2 million members in approximately 8,100 Posts worldwide.  Its mission is to “honor the dead by helping the living” through veterans’ service, community service, national security and a strong national defense.
The VFW’s voice had been instrumental in establishing the Veterans Administration, creating a GI bill for the 20th century, the development of the national cemetery system and the fight for compensation for Vietnam vets exposed to Agent Orange and for veterans diagnosed with Gulf War Syndrome. In 2008, VFW won a long-fought victory with the passing of a GI Bill for the 21st Century, giving expanded educational benefits to America’s active-duty service members, and members of the Guard and Reserves, fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.The Post in Chandler, Arizona emulates the national vision with a consistent presence in the community to raise awareness of veterans issues, educating youth, and exemplary citizenship.
