Welcome to The Veteran's of Foreign Wars, Department of Virginia Scouting Website

"You know, the problem with the Boy Scouts is there ain't enough of them."
Will Rogers


At the February 18, 2017 University of Scouting Terry Meehan (L) and Tom Troy, both from Burke Post 5412, gave away hundreds of handouts on Scout of the Year, Voice of Democracy, Patriotís Pen, and Wood Badge scholarships.  We set up by 0730 and stayed until 1400 when we were finally running out of paper.  In our spare time, we also recruited 4 new VFW members for Alexandria, Springfield, Leesburg, and Fredericksburg.  A fun day.
