The members of the United States military are proudly serving their country and their service is supported by a variety of patriotic and supportive organizations. The groups that give support to our Veterans give support and recognition to the warrior’s service to their country. These groups give aid and support directly to the families and veterans. One of the groups that give the most support is the Veterans of foreign wars organization. It gives direct facilitation to veterans and support to veterans in receiving and applying their full benefits that they qualify for.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars is a direct organization that supports both local veterans issues and nationwide organizational efforts in military Veterans issues. Veterans need assistance and help in application for services with the Veterans Administration and Federal Government services. Each of the local communities in the United States often feature a VFW facility that meet and give support to Veterans on an individual level. Many Veterans are eligible to collect benefits but they do not apply for or do not know about specific benefits that they are eligible for. Military personnel can rest assured that after their service commitment is up and they separate that there are benefits that they qualify for and can receive. One large benefit that veterans are eligible for is support for any service connected injury or illness. You are qualified for a VFW membership if you have served overseas and are a veteran with more than 180 days of service consecutively. Participation and membership in the VFW is entirely voluntary and there are a number of different specific benefits that can give assistance in different areas. As a VFW member you are eligible to join a federal Pentagon credit union, and you can receive a VFW honor roll listing. It does not matter if you are single, male or female, but you are eligible for membership if you meet the service requirements.
The VA hospital offers care and medical support for veterans, and is funded by the federal government. The services and medications that are made available to veterans is free or low cost, depending on the situation. There are a number of medical programs and supplementary care programs that are available to veterans. The VFW sponsors meetings and clinics to help individual Veterans to sign up for services that they qualify for.
