Happy New 2018 from the VFW
The VFW is continuing the fight FOR VETERANS in 2018.
Thank you for all you do to support America’s defenders. We simply could not help them transition to civilian life, continue their education, and file their VA claims with the expert assistance of VFW Service Officers without you.
You should know what a difference you make for veterans of every generation. Your support of the VFW:
- Helped veterans receive more than $7 billion in earned benefit payments from the VA, which includes $1.2 billion in new claims (2016).
- Helped us administer over $9 million in financial assistance grants for military families in financial straits (since 2004).
- Awarded over $4.1 million through the VFW’s “Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship” to help more than 900 veterans and service members continue their education (since 2014).
You can see even more ways your contributions help veterans with a look at our comprehensive VFW Fact Sheet.
Again, we are grateful to you for your unwavering respect for the men and women who defend our freedom. And we look forward to working with you to protect veterans’ rights throughout 2018 and beyond.
