Help teach youth our American heritage, promote patriotism, demonstrate the proper care of the U.S. Flag, and ensure that the public will never forget the sacrifices made by America’s soldiers by educating our communities. Our Americanism brings attention to Prisoners of War and those Missing in Action, the full accounting of which is a high priority of the VFW and Ladies Auxiliary VFW. Our projects and programs share and honor these special veterans.
