Are you a Purple Heart Recipient or a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom? You may be eligible to have your first year's membership dues paid for by the VFW Department of California. Be part of the oldest combat veteran organization in the nation.
Due to the continued State of California COVID-19 restrictions, this year's State Convention will be held electronically. More information to come in the next weeks.
The VFW is teaming up with Dream Flights to honor America's World War II veterans. The hope is to provide over 1,000 WWII veterans with a 20-minute flight in a Boeing Stearman biplane. The event will take place from August 1, 2021 to September 30, 2021 (61 days) and will touch over 300 cities.
Our success as an organization depends on members like you. From members to appointed or elected officers, we each have an important role to play. Whether you've just been elected or want to brush up on protocol, here's where you can access resources designed with your role as a VFW leader in mind.
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.

Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, but in striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong.
The willingness of America's veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.
A man's country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.
