The objectives of the VFW are to serve needy veterans and their families, insure a strong national defense, and promote true patriotism and allegiance to the United States of America. Projects we support include: Little League, Boy Scouts of America, USO, Blue Star Mothers and monthly parties at the Menlo Park V.A. Hospital Nursing Home. We welcome all honorably discharged veterans and currently serving military personnel who have a campaign medal for service in a combat zone.
Through the active collaboration of the Veterans Memorial Senior Center staff and the Redwood City Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Department, the important role of advocacy for seniors and their stakeholders is promoted. Consistent with the documented direction of the Strategic Plan of Redwood City Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Department and the commitment of the VMSC, the Center continues to grow in its effectiveness as a valued community institution.
