The VFW traces its origins to veterans of Cuba and the Philippines who formed separate groups in Ohio, Colorado And Pennsylvania. They all had similar goals and were all formed at the turn of the century. Because of their common purpose they untied and formed what is now the VFW. Combining the three original sections of the VFW, these entities went through 14 names changes before naming on August 4th 1914 the “Veterans of Foreign Wars”.
