The Mission of the Veterans of Foreign Wars are Fraternal, Patriotic, Historical 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 widows and orphans. To maintain true allegiance to the Government of the United States of America and fidelity to its Constitution and laws, to foster true patriotism, to maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom, and to preserve and defend the United States from all her enemies, whomsoever.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars has been a voice for our nation’s veterans for more than a century and is the nation’s oldest major veteran’s organization. To America and the world, the letters “VFW” symbolize volunteerism and community service. We at Francis J. Lynch Memorial VFW Post 3168 will do our best to support and be a part of this global vision.
