The VFW's National Legislative Service is our watchdog on Capitol Hill with one goal: to protect YOU.
We meet with members of Congress and advocate for legislation to improve benefits and programs for military service members, veterans and their families. We listen to our members through resolutions adopted at the VFW National Convention and surveys conducted on the VFW's website. We equip, educate and organize our members through the VFW Action Corp.
As one of the most respected voices on Capitol Hill, we will never stop fighting for the rights and benefits all veterans have earned through their faithful and honorable service. Getting beneficial legislation passed and stopping unacceptable legislation is our mission.
Stay informed, read the VFW Action Corps weekly to get the latest information on key veterans' legislation, national security matters, and other news that affect America's defenders. Make your voice heard! Help strengthen our position on important issues by responding to VFW Action Alerts and participating in Action Corps surveys.
By testifying at congressional committee hearings and interacting with congressional members, the VFW has played an instrumental role in nearly every piece of veterans' legislation passed since the beginning of the 20th and 21st centuries.
