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. Oklahoma VFW Rider Group (VFWRG) are proud sponsors of the Oklahoma VFW Foundation.
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.

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.
A man's country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.
