ABOUT US

The VFW traces its roots back to 1899 when veterans of the Spanish-American War (1898) and the Philippine Insurrection (1899-1902) founded local organizations to secure rights and benefits for their service: Many arrived home wounded or sick. There was no medical care or veterans' pension for them,and they were left to care for themselves. 
 
In their misery, some of these veterans banded together and formed organizations with what would become known as the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States. After chapters were formed in Ohio, Colorado and Pennsylvania, the movement quickly gained momentum. By 1915, membership grew to 5,000; by 1936, membership was almost 200,000. 

Since then, the VFW's voice had been instrumental in establishing the Veterans Administration, creating a GI bill for the 20th century, the development of the national cemetery system and the fight for compensation for Vietnam vets exposed to Agent Orange and for veterans diagnosed with Gulf War Syndrome. In 2008, VFW won a long-fought victory with the passing of a GI Bill for the 21st Century, giving expanded educational benefits to America's active-duty service members, and members of the Guard and Reserves, fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. 

The VFW also has fought for improving VA medical centers services for women veterans.

Besides helping fund the creation of the Vietnam, Korean War, World War II and Women in Military Service memorials, the VFW in 2005 became the first veterans' organization to contribute to building the new Disabled Veterans for Life Memorial, which opened in November 2010.

Annually, the nearly 2 million members of the VFW and its Auxiliaries contribute more than 8.6 million hours of volunteerism in the community, including participation in Make A Difference Day and National Volunteer Week. 

From providing over $3 million in college scholarships and savings bonds to students every year, to encouraging elevation of the Department of Veterans Affairs to the president's cabinet, the VFW is there.

 BACK TO BINGO UPDATES
We're re- opening our doors for Bingo on Tuesday,16 June 2020. The first game will start promptly at 7:30 P.M. 

We’re so very excited to welcome our bingo family back in the doors. We’ve missed YOU and love being back to bingo! Opening safely is a very complex project that involves countless new procedures, new systems and extensive training. It requires that we, our Bingo Hall, it’s employees and you, our customers, all working together to strictly adhere to Governor Kemp’s re-opening guidelines to ensure we are all safe and remain healthy. The new social distancing and maximum capacity guidelines now limit the number of players that are allowed to enter the hall. Therefore, entrance into our Bingo Hall is based on a first come, first serve basis. Only 88 players are allowed (at this time) in the hall and once we hit capacity, no additional players will be permitted to enter. If you plan to stay and play, we highly recommend that you purchase your bingo products at the beginning of the first session to secure your "spot” for the remaining games. In addition, the following customer guidelines are in effect until further notice. We ask that you thoroughly review the list and have complete understanding of our new procedures. We kindly ask ALL PLAYERS to be patient and kind towards your friendly team of bingo workers and fellow players at the VFW Post 2681 Bingo Hall. So much has changed and we all need time to adjust. To remain open and continue enjoying our beloved game of bingo it is of utmost importance that every player put their best foot forward and do their part.

 

 Self-screen before visiting our hall. Any player displaying any of these symptoms while in the hall and playing bingo, will be politely asked to leave. Please stay home if you have any of the following symptoms.

 Immediately wash or disinfect hands upon entering the bingo hall. A worker will be greeting you at the front entrance door upon entering and have hand sanitizer available for your convenience.

 We will have social distancing markers immediately upon entering the hall. Please follow these social distancing markers. Please do not cut ahead in lines and kindly maintain a 6-foot separation when waiting to purchase your bingo products.

★ All players are required to wear masks while inside our facility. Masks may be purchased, if available, at our bingo hall, if available.

★ Do your best to maintain at least 6 feet separation from other players at all times within the hall.

★ Always place your money on the counter or table to complete a purchase. Cashiers and floor workers will not be exchanging money directly through hand-to-hand contact.

Again, to remain open and ensure we are all safe, players will be required to follow these guidelines to the best of their ability. If a player is having difficulty adhering to these guidelines or becomes disrespectful and rude towards anyone in the hall, they will be asked to leave and further review our guidelines. Once clearly understood, a customer is welcome to return and play with us.

Please note that these guidelines are subject to change based on State and Local guideline changes and always in an effort to improve our systems and procedures. Again, please be patient with us and your fellow players as we work to serve you better and always strive to be the best bingo in Marietta, GA.
