The Mission of the VFW:
The VFW was established to assist veterans. Our mission 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. The purposes of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States are fraternal, patriotic, historical, charitable, and educational; to preserve and strengthen comradeship among its members; to assist worthy comrades; to perpetuate the memory and history of our dead, and to assist their surviving spouses and orphans; to maintain true allegiance to the Government of the United States of America, and fidelity to its institutions of American freedom, and to preserve and defend the United States from all her enemies.
What we do:
VFW Post 724 is highly active in and around New Brighton supporting veterans and other patriotic organizations.
Examples of the support we have provided our community thus far in 2017 include:
- Provided color guards for parades and school events
- Supported multiple Boy Scouts in their Eagle Scout Projects
- Donated to support the WWI exhibit at the Minnesota Historical Society
- Donated money to support veterans affected by the recent hurricanes
And with your continued support, we could do much more!
