To answer your questions.
#1 Yes, VFW stands for Veterans of Foreign Wars
#2 Yes, the Veterans are of US Military service
#3 No, the veterans here do not tell war stories, at least they haven't so far but there are no rules against it.

You didn't ask but you do not have to be a member of the VFW or even a veteran to join our ongoing discussions at this forum, all that is required is that everyone is treated with courtesy and respect.
The members that have been posting here are not here to tell 'war stories' but to ask questions and learn about the workings of the VFW. Forums are for discussing ideas and post problems not telling 'war stories'. But if you prefer tell us a few. We'll be glad to read them.
