Profile America: Monday, September 29th. Today is the anniversary of an organization that is 104 years old, but as modern as today's dangerous world. The Veterans of Foreign Wars - known simply as the VFW - was founded in 1899 in Kansas City, Missouri. Those who served in the Spanish-American War became its first members, joined over the years by veterans of World Wars I and II, Korea, Vietnam and the Gulf War. Future members will come from the ranks of those serving in Afghanistan and Iraq. Membership is open only to those who have earned an Overseas Campaign Medal - currently, there are about 2-million members. The total number of veterans in the U.S. today is just over 25-million.
