One of the main purposes of the VFW is to perpetuate the memory and history of our dead, and to assist their surviving spouses and orphans.
VFW Posts throughout the State of Oklahoma have a VFW Riders Group. Please check in your area to see if there is a Riders Group. VFW members, VFW Auxiliary members and VFW supporters are allowed to ride with us.
First inspired by the poem "Flanders Fields" by John McCrae, the red poppy has become the international symbol of those who have fallen on the battlefield.
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group. Combat Veterans need a combat veteran organization; that organization is the VFW.

WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Persian Gulf War, Kosovo, War in Afghanistan, War in Iraq, War on Global Terror and other Peace-Keeping Expeditionary Campaigns throughout the globe.
The VFW is a outstanding organization to help veterans and their families. The comradeship and the fact that we assist fellow comrades in distress, fight for veterans' rights and benefits are the reasons I joined the VFW.
That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. - President Abraham Lincoln
On the battlefield, the military pledges to leave no soldier behind. As a Nation, let it be our pledge that when they return home, we leave no veteran behind.
