<p>In the heart of Arlington Center, the gray VFW 1775 building sits across from the costume shop and in between the entrances to the bike path.</p>
<p>Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, with its auxiliaries, include 2.2 million members in approximately 8,100 posts worldwide.<br /><br />Its mission is to <i>"honor the dead by helping the living"</i> through veterans service, community service, national security and a strong national defense.<br /><br />The VFW 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, as many soldiers arrived home wounded or sick, and there was no medical care or veterans pension for them.</p>
