"Soaring to New Heights”

This marks the start of a new chapter in the History of the VFW Department of Florida. A new year with new leaders, but our goals and objectives remain the same. "To Honor the Dead, by Helping the Living” are more than words. They are a commitment that every member and every Post has made to the veterans and their families that we serve. 


To achieve this goal and the many others we have, we will need to soar to the greater heights that is instilled in each of us. We will need to learn to rise above the everyday struggles and keep focused on the mission. 


No one can predict to what heights we can soar together. With a growing number of males and females in the VFW and Auxiliary, we need to respect each other inside and outside the VFW. We need to reach out to our members and those eligible to ensure that everyone is welcomed into our family of veterans.


As we begin writing our chapter for the 2021-2022 year, we need to unite as one. What will be written over the next year will depend on each of you. This team of Officers is ready to soar, so get onboard with what will be an exciting year of service to our communities, our youth, our veterans and their families.  While doing all of that, we need to provide compassion, love, understanding and inclusiveness. 


These are our challenges, but by "Soaring to New Heights”, we can achieve all of it.

OUR MISSION


Our mission is very simple. We foster camaraderie among United States veterans of conflicts overseas, we serve our veterans, the military, and the communities, and we advocate on behalf of all veterans. We ensure that veterans are respected for their service, receive their earned entitlements, and are recognized for their sacrifices that they and their loved ones have made on behalf of this great country.
Our core values are to put the interests of our members first, to treat donors as partners in our cause. We promote patriotism, honor military service, and ensure the care of veterans and their families, and serve in our communities. We always promote a positive image of the VFW and respect the diversity of veteran opinions.
