Some of our organization’s earliest ties to the community involve youth groups. Few are stronger, and none more lasting, than the close relationship between the VFW and America's scouting organizations, dating back to 1915.


Annually, the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States recognizes individuals who are: Eagle Scouts, Girl Scout Gold Award recipients, Venture Summit Award recipients and/or Sea Scout Quartermasters who have risen above their peers in exemplifying the qualities of that rank.


Our Scout of the Year program provides members of the Boy or Girl Scouts, Sea Scouts or Venturing Crew the chance to be recognized for having demonstrated outstanding citizenship in school, scouting, and their community, as well as stalwart patriotism and love of country.
