VETERAN BENEFITS & ASSISTANCE

Veteran Benefits & Assistance

Originally founded in 1899 as the American Veterans of Foreign Service, the Veterans of Foreign Wars continues to be a voice for returning and currently deployed service members and their families. The Veterans of Foreign Wars is dedicated to supporting those who sacrifice so much for this country, veterans, service members in the US Armed Forces, and their families.

We are affiliated with what is known as the "Joint Service Team" (aka the "Joint Service Committee") --- they meet twice a week (Tues & Wed, all day) at the American Legion Post 234 (22909 56th Ave W in Mountlake Terrace) for Help With VA Benefits & Claims at our post.
 
Our VFW Post 3348 Service Officer is Tim Miller. He can be contacted at (206) 661-6891 or by sending an email to: safetmiller@msn.com.
