Introduction to MaineVFW.org
The Department of Maine , Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States was established in 1921. Our first Department Commander was Edward E. Philbrook who served from 1921-1922.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States 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 arrived home wounded or sick. There was no medical care or veterans' pension for them, and they were left to care for themselves. In their misery, some of these veterans banded together and formed organizations with what would become 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. By 1915, membership grew to 5,000; by 1936, membership was almost 200,000.
