The Elks are committed to their mission,"So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them. "The Elks National Veterans Service Commission was established in 1946 immediately after World War II, with the sole mission of serving our nation’s veterans. In VA clinics, veterans' homes, USOs, homeless shelters and more, thousands of Elks volunteers give generously of their time, energy and resources to serve veterans and military members each year.
