Independently produced by the VFW New Haven, "The Veterans' Journey" asks viewers to "connect with your fellow veterans."

Because we are veterans…

We know the military is way more than just some job. We also know the “real world” can be isolating and can lack a sense of purpose. That’s why you should stand with us. We continue to look out for each other and to serve America. Best of all, we have a good time doing it with people who understand us.  Learn More

Founded in 1899, The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States (VFW) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit veterans service organization comprised of eligible veterans and military service members.

Charity

We support our fellow veterans and their families through direct action, Buddy Poppy drives, hospital visits, donating to the VFW National Home for Children, walking 22K in the MLC DET 40 Hike to Remember, and organizing the New Haven Kick for Nick Night in October.

Community

We sponsor and participate in community and patriotic activities such as the Homeless Point-In-Time Count, town monument beautification, military ceremonies, scholarship contests, flag-retirement ceremonies, and by donating to the GWOT Memorial Foundation.

Outreach

We have successfully connected with hundreds of military veterans in the Greater New Haven region and was honored as a 2017 All-American Post–putting it in the top echelon of posts worldwide.
