Today is National Veterans of Foreign Wars Day

Today, September 29, 2014 people in Palm Springs, the greater Palm Springs area and across America pause to honor our Veterans of Foreign Wars.


National VFW Day is celebrated annually on September 29. This day is devoted to the VFW organization and it’s members who have served our nation.

The VFW was established on September 29, 1899 by a group of veterans from the Spanish-American war. It has since grown to be the nation’s largest group of combat veterans. They continue “to honor the dead by helping the living.” The VFW promote patriotism, good will and youth scholarships. They also provide military assistance and community service programs, promote youth activities and volunteer many hours in their local communities.

How do you celebrate today? Honor the VFW members and veterans in your community. Let them know that you appreciate the sacrifices they have made for all of us. We truly are the land of the free because of the brave.

God bless America. God bless our veterans and God bless you.
