VFW in the Classroom

Every day, we strive to thank America's educators by providing them 
with helpful resources and encouraging our members to visit local 
classrooms. Let us help you educate America's future leaders and bring 
history to life!

Veterans play an important role in educating our nation's youth about 
the founding principles upon which America was founded. As combat 
veterans, VFW members can provide students with a unique perspective 
about the sacrifices America's service members make to maintain 
freedom for all of us.

When visiting a classroom, a VFW member will prepare a brief 
introduction, a main presentation and a Q&A session.

American history is something we all share, and there's no one better 
to help tell that story than someone who's had a great part in shaping 

Contact Donald Wischmann at to arrange for a 
veteran to visit your classroom.
