VFW Post 5293 Southtown Joplin

The true character of America is measured by her communities and the people who work to improve them. Whether at a national level or in their own backyards, our members dedicate millions of hours each year working to spread patriotism and honor our nation’s heroes.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT: Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5293 South-Town Joplin is located in the Southwest Missouri community of Joplin, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to US military service members and veterans and our communities in the Four States area. Our mission is to support those who have sacrificed so much for this country, US military veterans, those males and females currently serving in our Armed Forces, and their families. We do this through community service projects and camaraderie, a strong commitment to our National security and a strong national defense.  At the national level our mission statement is simply summed up by:
