VFW National Organization COVID-19

- 3/12/2020

As a result of the recent outbreak of COVID-19, the VFW National Organization has suspended all non-essential travel effective immediately through April 11.  The non-essential travel includes all national representative travel, all employee travel to miscellaneous department functions and other events. This recent decision includes the cancellation of the Sr Vice Commander/Adjutant Conference, April 2-5. Mission essential travel to maintain continuity of operations for the national organization will continue.


I’ve attached is a copy of the COVID – 19 information provided to all VFW employees along with a memo to Departments concerning how they are to proceed within their Departments.  We highly encourage those Departments continue to evaluate all aspects of this virus as it pertains to their members who will be attending upcoming conferences. As the POTUS mentioned last evening, everyone needs to rethink attending large gatherings. 


We’ll continue to provide updates as this situation continues to evolve.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
