The VFW Military Assistance Program (MAP) is the outstretched hand between the VFW and the local military, offering our support around the world. In the last five years, MAP has sponsored events supporting over one million service members and their families. If you are a service member or a Family Readiness Group leader, please contact us and we will help you locate a VFW Post or Ladies Auxiliary in your area to work with.
Does your Post or Ladies Auxiliary want to host a MAP event but doesn’t know where to start? The best place to start is with the MAP Grant Application, which can only be completed and submitted by a VFW or Ladies Auxiliary member. From this page, simply login (link is above) with a VFW member login and go to the National Military Services link, then look for the Military Assistance Program (MAP) files.
A huge part of MAP includes the Adopt-a-Unit program. Through Adopt-a-Unit, VFW and its Ladies Auxiliary adopt hundreds of military units around the world. Adopt-a-Unit’s goal is to develop supportive relationships with units before, during and after deployments to help deliver the vast network of resources VFW has available for the military. Please contact us if your unit is interested in learning more.
