History of Veterans of Foreign Wars VFW Post 1
VFW Post 1 was founded in 1899. The first meeting, held at the Colorado State Capitol, was the first of many used to organize benefits and rights for veterans involved in overseas conflicts.
The VFW Post 1 Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars was established in 1914 – 100+ years of service to our veterans, their families, communities, and our youth. One of the most important programs the VFW Auxiliary established was donating over $3 million annually towards cancer aid and research.
All proceeds are 100%; there is no overhead.
