All-American & All-State Post 2020-21
Thank you for visiting we hope that you will take the time to meet Edward F. Lukoski and learn more about the USS Franklin (CV-13) and how she survived but at a great loss of life.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars 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: Many arrived home wounded or sick. There was no medical care or veterans' pension for them, and they were left to care for themselves. 
In their misery, some of these veterans banded together and formed organizations with what would become known as the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States. After chapters were formed in Ohio, Colorado and Pennsylvania, the movement quickly gained momentum. By 1915, membership grew to 5,000; by 1936, membership was almost 200,000. 

Since then, 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.
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.

     PACT Act Campaign



The VFW worked tirelessly to champion the PACT Act and secure this

life-changing legislation FOR VETERANS! Now, we’re ready to make sure

every veteran receives the care and benefits they’ve been promised by our

country. Launched on Jan. 10, 2023, the VFW's PACT Act Info initiative is an

effort to educate toxic-exposed veterans on the expansion of benefits brought

on by the passage of the PACT Act and streamline trusted access to securing

those benefits. To help spread awareness, the VFW has created a PACT Act Info

Toolkit with specially designed resources that you can share in support of

increasing awareness.
