The mission of the VFW National Legislative Service is to represent the VFW position on various issues before the United States Congress.

 

 

This is accomplished through testifying at congressional committee hearings as well as interacting directly with members of Congress and their staffs, and the staffs of Committees having jurisdiction over veterans legislation.

 

 

The NLS not only works for the advancement of legislation beneficial to veterans but, also, has the responsibility to bring about defeat of legislation detrimental to our Nation's veterans.
