I just wanted to say hello to all. My grandfather was in the V.F.W. in L.A. He passed away a few years and always wanted me to join. The main reason that I am posting this is that I have recently come into the possession of the U.S Army uniforms from my great grandfather in WW I, my grandfather during WW II, my father during Vietnam, and my uniform from Desert Shield/Storm. I would like for people to be able to see them. I was just wondering where anyone has any suggestions.
The point of a Military Funeral, a U.S. folded flag is presented to the next of kin. Now the question: some in our post members say the supporting group (Riflemen, Flag Barriers, Etc) are to be at "present Arms" when the Flag is being presented to the next of kin. I cannot locate this in the Manual of procedures, nor have I ever witnessed this in any process in the past.
Comments please ?

I am new to the VFW (less than 18 months) and during this time we have made tremendous improvements to our post and our membership.

The problem that we are having is a life member who has been there for about 15 years. He got mad a year ago and left the post. He is now back causing problems. He…Continue

How can a person stay involved in VFW affairs when the city you are in does not have an active VFW post. The city of Montgomery is a military and college town and does not have an active auxillary. What a person to do?
What is the status of my membership application ?Continue

I am trying to get local Veteran interest since the projects are to honor their service. As a veteran I enjoy providing these services. We create free memorial websites which can include photos, music, etc.. We also incorporate the latest technology into our memorials which allows the families to view their loved ones website from anywhere. If you get a chance go to www.smartmemorials.com and click on the video link.
