2023-2024 SCOUTING PROGRAM
Some of our earliest ties to the
community involve youth groups and perhaps none are stronger or more lasting
than the relationship between the VFW and America's scouting organizations. In
fact, our partnership with the Boy Scouts of America dates back to 1915 when
VFW Post 2100 helped to establish Troop 1 in Everett, Washington.
