We Support Our Troops

Our Wilmington Community is OUR PRIDE. The same pride felt while defending our country hasn't diminished as we work to better our community. The VFW knows better than anyone that patriotism begins at an early age, so we reward it through our SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM. Other programs include FLAG EDUCATION along with VFW in the classroom. If you share our values of PATRIOTISM, TEAMWORK, LOYALTY & SERVICE then get involved. PATRIOTISM has no expiration date.                                                                                     To all VETERANS of overseas conflicts, WE PROMISE to foster camaraderie, to serve & to advocate. 

 All gave some...Some gave all...

Veterans know the price of liberty.
