122nd Annual Anniversary of the VFW which is an organization that was founded on September 29, 1899, by a small group of war veterans of the Spanish-American War and the Philippine–American War. Their purpose was simple: to advocate for the needs of their members and to honor the men and women who have served the U.S. military. National VFW Day is a organization holiday that’s celebrated on September 29th and helps the VFW promote not only patriotism but also their military service contributions, community service programs and youth scholarship offers.
