Voice of Veterans
This website is:
Dedicated to those who were vigilant so we could rest,
Who gave everything that we may thrive,
Who are silent that we may breathe free.
We honor you, veterans of USA.

This VFW Post is:
Politically incorrect. We say Merry Christmas, God bless
America, we salute our flag and give thanks to our troops
and first responders.  If this offends you, leave this
website ASAP.

In God we trust.

                                           VFW at a Glance

Our Mission: To foster camaraderie among United States veterans of overseas
conflicts. To serve our veterans, the military and our communities. To advocate on
behalf of all veterans.

Our Vision: Ensure that veterans are respected for their service, always receive their
earned entitlements, and are recognized for the sacrifices they and their loved ones
have made on behalf of this great country.

The VFW is a nonprofit veteran’s service organization composed of eligible veterans
and military service members from the active, Guard and Reserve forces. The VFW is
dedicated to veteran’s service, legislative advocacy, and military and community
service programs.  Two previous organizations merged in 1914 to create the
Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, which was chartered by Congress in
1936.   Those serving honorably in the U.S. Armed Forces in a foreign war or
overseas operation recognized by a campaign medal, or recipients of hostile-fire or
imminent danger are eligible to join.   There are nearly 1.7 million VFW and Auxiliary
members in all 50 states, and many foreign countries.   Worldwide there are
approximately 6400 Posts.

It is becoming more difficult each year to recruit new members, especially the younger
soldiers with families who are still working.  The Minnetonka VFW Post #5919 is
currently 100% in achieving new membership goal in 2019 according to district
standards.  We are fortunate to have a group of active members who participate on a
monthly basis.  We even have members who work for veteran organizations that have
the skill and knowledge to make sure veterans receive earned benefits.

We welcome all veterans who are qualified to consider joining our unit.  Reply to the
email above or take a look at our "Why join our post", "How to contact", "Post
officers", or the "Meeting place and time" pages.
