Our Allies

We are proud to be associated with many great companies and organizations that work to support America's service members, veterans and their families. 


Every day, the VFW works with our affiliate organizations to ensure our mission is fulfilled, and collectively we are making the biggest impact possible. 

Established 1914, members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary set out to serve the veterans of this country and their communities in honor of the sacrifices and commitment of every man and woman who has served in uniform.

As a 501(c)3, the VFW Foundation provides a variety of programs and services for troops abroad, military families back in the U.S. and America’s often-forgotten veterans. These programs support all branches of service and are provided at no cost to the recipients.  

Founded in 1920 and comprised of the officers and leadership of the VFW, Military Order of the Cootie of the United States (MOC) is a veterans service organization that works hard to further the aims of the VFW while adding their own touch of humor. 

Founded in 1925, the VFW National Home for Children is a place where the families left behind by war -- mothers and children, brothers and sisters -- can remain together, keeping the family circle intact even when their service member didn't come home.

Established in 1912, the VFW Store provides income to support VFW programs through the sale of emblematic and patriotic merchandise. It continues that mission today and the revenue generated goes to help veterans, military service members and their families!
