To me the VFW was always grubby little alcoholic bars, the American Legion on the other hand was much more normal and better run with better clientele.

That’s the way my father described them too.
He said the VFW was where blue collar vets, without their wives, went to drink beer and listen to the juke box, while the American Legion was more white collar, a place where you could take your wife and family and alcohol was less prominent.
