the Dead by Helping
The VFW Constitution states in part that, among the
purposes of the association, is the requirement "to assist worthy comrades;
to perpetuate the memory and history of our dead, and to assist their widows and
orphans...". The National Veterans Service carries out that mandate of our
Constitution and translates it into action in accordance with our VFW motto,
"To Honor the Dead by Helping the Living".
