The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) has announced William J. King has achieved All-American status as a District Commander. To achieve this honor, District commanders must meet strict requirements in their role to include exceptional leadership, authentic accomplishment in membership growth and strong support of VFW core programs.

King, a Life member of Post 10624 in Mount Pleasant South Carolina, is one of 56 VFW District commanders worldwide to earn the title of All-American Commander. His hard work played an integral role helping the organization successfully remain focused on its service to veterans amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Commanders like William J King are a fine example of VFW leadership, and it’s their hard work and dedication to the mission and values of our organization that has rightly earned them this great honor,” said VFW Membership Director Rick Butler.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. is the nation's largest and oldest major war veteran’s organization. Founded in 1899, the congressionally chartered VFW is comprised entirely of eligible veterans and military service members from the active, Guard and Reserve forces. With more than 1.5 million VFW and Auxiliary members located in 6,000 posts worldwide, the nonprofit veterans service organization is proud to proclaim “No one does more for veterans” than the VFW, which is dedicated to veterans’ service, legislative advocacy, and military and community service programs.
