About Us

AGIF-Congressionally Chartered in 1948





The Modesto Chapter of the American GI Forum was established in 1969. AGIF is a veterans & family organization and welcomes all veterans to join. It is our goal to grow our chapter and to assist other areas to establish their own chapter. On Nov. 4, 2018 the documentary movie The  Longoria  Affair  was presented at The State Theatre. This was a great opportunity to see how AGIF became the organization that it is today.
