VFW’s mission statement is:
"to foster camaraderie among United States veterans of overseas conflicts and to serve our veterans, the military, and our communities and advocate on behalf of all veterans.”
VFW’s mission statement is made up of 3 Components:
1. Veteran fellowship
2. Serve veterans
3. Veterans’ voice
The first component of the VFW mission statement highlights the preservation and strengthening of comradeship among its members.
The second component of VFW’s mission statement specifies the people involved in perpetuating the memory and history of those who served with their lives and thank them for their patriotism and to help the surviving spouses and orphans.
On the other hand, the third component VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) mission statement presents the advocacy for justice for the veterans, service members and military families on an array of issues and continues to be the voice of veterans everywhere. This is in consonance to the VFW vision statement.
This is to preserve the memory of those who went to battle in pursuit of fighting for the rights of the people that they serve through their loyalty and love for the country. Their utmost dedication cannot be forgotten, and it is in this light that their spouses and orphans be given the proper benefits that they truly deserve.
