What's the VFW?

The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States (VFW) is a nonprofit veterans service organization consisting of eligible veterans and military service members from the active, guard, and reserve forces.

About VFW Post 8383

Our post is located in New Blaine, Arkansas, and was established in 1976. We've been a huge part of Logan county since the day we began. Helping veterans and changing lives is at the heart of what we do - and we do it well.

Every year, a select group of VFW Posts is presented with All American Post status. All American status is meant to recognize outstanding VFW posts based on participation in VFW programs as well as membership gains by posts, districts, and departments. The New Blaine VFW received this designation in 2021.
