The VFW strives to provide each individual service member with the real support they need and deserve. The programs offered through VFW National Military Services (NMS), aim to lessen the burden on the men and women who are sacrificing so much to keep us free. Helping military families weather long deployments through free phone time and military family activities, as well as providing emergency financial assistance to those experiencing a dire financial situation are just a few of the ways VFW works to support our brave men and women. We've been there. We understand.

National Military Services
VFW National Military Services (NMS) offers support and assistance to the military community in many different ways through its four programs, Operation Uplink™, Military Assistance Program, Unmet Needs and the VFW "Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship" program. Whether it's helping service members and their families through long deployments or cope with rough financial times, NMS programs put our military families first. From providing free phone time and emergency financial assistance to farewell and welcome home ceremonies and college scholarships, the NMS department is here supporting our troops day in and day out. Some say they've got your back. We prove it. The VFW NMS programs are funded solely by the generosity of our donors.
National Veterans Services
As the largest organization of combat veterans, we understand the frustrations that can arise with making a VA claim. That’s why our National Veterans Service (NVS) was created. Our nationwide network of skilled VFW Veterans Service Officers helps you wade through all the bureaucratic red tape, offering you a better opportunity to get the disability claim you deserve. You don’t even need to be a VFW member to take advantage of this free service. As a veteran, this is a service you’ve earned.
