The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) is proud to celebrate our nation’s African American service members, veterans and their families throughout the month of February, National Black History Month.


VFW Post 632 is very proud of the effort put forth by participating students from Harrisonburg City Schools and Rockingham County Schools in our 2022-23 Essay Contest. Our Voice of Democracy winner is Jordan Passarelli from Harrisonburg High School and Jordan Horneber from Montevideo Middle School.

  • The Voice of Democracy (open to students grades 9-12) is a 3-5-minute essay, and the 2022-2023 theme is "America: Why is the Veteran Important?” The Patriot’s Pen essay contest (open to students in grades 6-8) encourages young minds to examine America’s history, along with their own experiences in modern American society, by drafting a 300- to 400-word essay, expressing their views based on the patriotic theme: "My Pledge to Our Veterans." 
Raffle Calendar drawings are held each Thursday for the period Friday thru Thursday.  Results will be posted here.
