Our Post has been in existence for more than 60 years. Our legacy has served and represented a lineage of more than five generations of Snohomish County veterans.

 

We are proud to continue the tradition of navigating our Post to serve our veterans - to one day pass our mantle to serve a new generation of combat veterans, and to all servicemembers in need within our Everett community. 

Who We Are


The VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) of the United States is a nonprofit veterans service organization comprised of eligible veterans military service members from the active, guard and reserve forces. 

Our overall organization traces its roots back to 1899, when veterans of the Spanish-American War (1898) and the Philippine Insurrection (1899 - 1902) founded local organizations to secure rights and benefits for their service. Many veterans arrived home wounded or sick. There were little to no medical care or veterans' pension for them. Largely they were left to fend for themselves after coming home.

In their misery, some veterans banded together and formed organizations that would eventually unify into larger entities that would be known as the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States. After chapters were formed in Ohio, Colorado, and Pennsylvania, the movement quickly gained momentum. Today, membership stands at more than 1.5 million members of the VFW and its Auxiliary. 

Like the VFW National - Everett VFW Post 2100 is no different in pursuing our mission towards fostering camaraderie, community, and a shared sense of fellowship amongst local Snohomish County veterans of oversea conflicts. We strive to maintain the virtues that persists beyond our military service, and to unite fellow local veterans together in our shared experience of fighting beyond our nation's borders.
