An Unmistakable Symbol of Support for Veterans Since 1922, the VFW has distributed what would become the VFW “Buddy” Poppy® to raise money for disabled, struggling veterans. The VFW Buddy Poppies are assembled by veterans in VA Hospitals and program proceeds still benefit needy veterans.
Our programs support our service members while they are on the front line, as they are being discharged and long after they return. Your tax-deductible donation will be immediately directed to the VFW programs where your support is most urgently needed.

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers. For he today that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother. - William Shakespeare
That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. - President Abraham Lincoln
