The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, Department of Nevada, is a non-profit veterans organization that is a subordinate unit of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, with jurisdiction within the state of Nevada. It’s comprised of eligible veterans and military service members from the active, guard and reserve forces.

The organization goes 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.
