Adopt-A-Unit FAQ
The Adopt-a-Unit Program assists in building relationships between the VFW and our military members.

VFW Posts work with unit commanders and senior enlisted personnel to develop supportive relationships with units before, during and after deployments. We offer a vast network of free resources and a variety of direct support for military members and their families.
Who is Eligible to Adopt-a-Unit:

Why you should Adopt-a-Unit:
To support your local military members and their families. As VFW/Auxiliary members, you 
understand the challenges military members and their families face and the support they need.
To help connect military members with the vast network of resources the VFW has available.
Conducting Adopt-a-Unit activities is a great recruiting opportunity.

assistance now more than ever. Your assistance is equally important whether the unit is home or deployed overseas.
