Veteran Service Organizations In Trouble (Opinion)

Every week I receive a membership showing the number of renewals and where we are, in membership, compared to last year.

It is a dismal report, to say the least, and is not something I look forward to receiving.

Soon to follow is the Emails and reminders stating that all I need to do to reach 100% is this specific duty or visit posts, or just follow these simple guidelines.

There is nothing on how to handle Posts with 15 members or less that live…

Mens Auxiliary Post 8567 Graham,Texas

 I guess each State at this time will have a say if the Men's Auxiliary will exist after August of 2016. Am I right or wrong on this. I have been told that there will still be a fight to keep the Men's Auxiliary this year at the National Convention. also I have been told that each State will have a say on weather we survive or not.

Sept. 29th observance?

Something to consider with the proper wear of the VFW Cover....

Rules About the VFW Cover

It seems there are a lot of comments about wanting to wear ball caps and other headgear at VFW Functions. We often hear; “Well, its in the By Laws”.

 The reply ; “WHERE!!!”

 

In a very under read section – The VFW Ritual, General Rules, Page 3; (d) Official caps will be the only head covering allowed to be worn at regular meetings of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United…

What Happened ?

I remember growing up in a small east Texas town named Marshall. It was a grand time to be alive and growing. I couldn’t wait until I graduated high school and could get out of town and make my mark on the world.

If you had asked me what my plan was, I couldn’t tell you. I just wanted to leave the small hick town and get away from everyone where I could be free. I was also getting into…

Men's Auxiliary, soon to be a thing of the past??

I am very intrigued and concerned regarding the rumors that the Men's Auxiliary of the VFW is going to be done away with.  I know from just my state, (Colorado) and district, that the "Men's Auxiliary" is another support vessel for the Post and does great things for it.  I have heard rumors of why this is possibly taking place and honestly it makes me sick to my stomach to hear the reasons why this may be happening.  To do away with it and/or merge it with the Ladies Auxiliary take away from…

BENEFIT POKER RUN FOR OUR VETERANS

Added by Kathie Reichenbach on July 21, 2014 at 8:33am — 1 Comment

Writing a big paper about the benefits of belonging to the VFW. In need of members willing to take a 5 minute survey.

Hello! My name is Kristen. I'm a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, and am gunning for a job helping veterans after college. I'm working on my bachelors, focusing on military personnel. Anyway, I have to administer a survey to VFW members for my final project to graduate. My post is small, so I was wondering if I could get some help from members in other areas. The survey just asks about benefits gained from being a member, five minutes max. All people would have to do is click on a link…
