Securing he benefits we earned through service

Talking to our state leaders

The VFW actively participates in the annual Vets on the Hill Day in St Paul, and we discuss Veterans issues with our state representatives and senators as they are being considered.


This year's Vet's On The Hill day is Tuesday,  March 20th.  The VFW, DAV, American Legion and other Veteran organizations will all be at the capitol facilitating meetings with Minnesota Veterans and our state representatives and senators.  

Talking with our federal elected representatives

The Owatonna VFW hosts townhall meetings with Congressman Walz, Senator Franken and Klobuchar and their staff.  these are chances for Veterans to speak directly with our lawmakers.

Fighting for new benefits

If you are using the Post 9/11 GI BIll or the new Forever GI BIll, you are using benefits secured by the members of the VFW and the other veterans organizations.
