The VFW traces its roots back to 1899 when veterans of the Spanish-American War (1898) and the Philippine
Insurrection (1899-1902) founded local organizations to secure rights and benefits for their service.
The VFW's voice had been instrumental in establishing the Veterans Administration, creating a GI bill for
the 20th century, the development of the national cemetery system and the fight for compensation for Vietnam
vets exposed to Agent Orange and for veterans diagnosed with Gulf War Syndrome. In 2008, VFW won a long-fought
victory with the passing of a GI Bill for the 21st Century, giving expanded educational benefits to America's
active-duty service members, and members of the Guard and Reserves, fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The VFW also has fought for improving VA medical centers services for women veterans.
Besides helping fund the creation of the Vietnam, Korean War, World War II and Women in Military Service
memorials, the VFW in 2005 became the first veterans' organization to contribute to building the new
Disabled Veterans for Life Memorial, which opened in November 2010.
