VFW Celebrates Black History Month 'The bravery and sacrifice of our African American brothers and sisters-in-arms has been integral to our nation's success'

VFW - 2/18/2021

"The bravery and sacrifice of our African American veterans, service members and their families has been integral to our nation's success," said Hal Roesch, VFW national commander. "From fighting on the front lines for the freedom of our nation, to celebrating the first Black Secretary of Defense confirmed only weeks ago, the contributions they have made and continue to make have helped to ensure our military remains the most exceptional force in the free world."

Throughout the month of February, the VFW will spotlight the service stories of African American veterans and their invaluable contributions to our military and society.
