Mission of the VFW

The Veterans of Foreign Wars is a non-profit organization charged with assisting our nation's veterans and their families. Our mission is to promote camaraderie among United States veterans of foreign conflicts, and to better serve veterans, active military members and their families, and our communities while advocating on behalf of all veterans.

Earlier this year, Post Commander Dave Wagoner introduced the custom of Challenge Coins to Post 7383. Each member is entitled to a coin, and each coin represents proud membership in the Post. Recently, Quartermaster Rich Grimes and Chaplain Pete Stewart reached out to older members of the Post, and were privileged to deliver their Challenge Coins to them at their residences.

The VFW is dedicated to promoting patriotism and investing in future generations. If you are a democracy-loving high school student interested in a $30,000 college scholarship or a patriotic middle school student interested in winning $5,000, these scholarships may be for you.

Make a Donation to Post 7383

What better way is there to show thanks to America's veterans than to make a charitable [and therefore tax-deductible] contribution to the Cary Franklin-Sloan Post 7383 of the Veterans of Foreign Wars?

The Post actively supports Dorcas Ministries and the Durham Veterans Administration Medical Center on a year-round basis. In addition, the Post maintains a fund for the purpose of assisting any honorably-discharged veteran who finds himself or herself in financial difficulty. This fund is replenished by automatic deductions from various Post accounts and by many fund-raising efforts throughout the year, but it never seems to be enough. Every little bit helps.
