The Largest VFW Post In The World

The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States believes America is defined by how it treats those who sacrificed to protect it, we believe in protecting and fighting for those who were brave enough to fight for us.
Whether on Capitol Hill or in our communities, the VFW fights for Veterans rights, helping Veterans get the benefits they deserve, and assisting Veterans further their education with scholarships and living assistance for them and their families. To do less, would be an unconscious betrayal of our responsibilities as Americans and Veterans. Become an agent of change, join the VFW.

CLOSED FOR BUSINESS - Tuesday, February 20th

Currently, there is NO FRESH WATER SUPPLY at the Post due to maintenance by the Virginia Water Co. They're addressing a mainline water issue near us, which will supply water to the soon-to-open Tractor Supply Co. store situated at the intersection of Minnieville Rd and Silverdale Dr. Bingo will be closed as well. I am truly sorry for this inconvenience but we will back open for business tomorrow.

DATA and NOVA Veterans Win Federal Grant to Help Senior or Disabled Veterans Get to Vaccination Sites

Reston, VA – MAY 5, 2021 – The Dulles Area Transportation Association (DATA) and the Northern Virginia Veterans Association (NOVA Veterans) have been awarded federal funding for a joint project to provide veterans who are disabled or over 65 with transportation to COVID-19 vaccination appointments. While vaccination availability has increased, an escalating critical transportation crisis is preventing our most vulnerable veterans from getting vaccinated. This is particularly problematic for those veterans who receive their medical care from distant Veterans Administration medical facilities and are without reliable transportation.
