What we all know is the REAL America! - The Heartlands.

I enjoy this site for the photos of what each of us posting photos choose to portray what we hesitate to write.

It might be a younglady we have been partnered with over many years. A child, a grandchild, a dog. Evan a cat!

Makes no difference! Watching the 100 photos telling the story of who we are, what interests us i believe is the best film of Americana that exists today. Ken Burns can tell his idea of history. These pictures are what it is all about.

Just a word of admiration for those who add photos to this site. I can really feel at home with friends and comrades so many evenings just watching [full screen} people I would be most comfortable with under any circumstances. BRAVO!

Something new?

Noticed today that the silver bar at the bottom of my screen now tells me how many visitors are on line.
It says "My VFW Web Com I 1 on line. Cool!
Now to figure a way to invite them in to chat. Otherwise why do we have the chat thingy? I thought it was an excellent idea to have Virtual friends. Beats buying drinks in a canteen!

I see your viewpoint-you homeless post. However, just for your information, If a post is not incorporated AND it has a post home or property, the property must be in the name of the trustees and to thoes who succeed the trustees AND they are the ones who purchase property (in their name). If a post is incorporated, the property is in the name of the corporation.

Incorporation protects the members of the post. If you have a fund raiser and while selling something, giving Poppys, or giving out hand-outs, etc. an "outsider" slips, falls, etc due to something the post did or did not do, all members can be sued unless you are incorporated.
To maintain your non-profit status, you need an EIN (tax) number to file your 990n, 990EZ, 990, or 990T, etc.
That is just two GOOD reasons. There are more but it reads like the IRS tax laws.
