THE WISDOM OF WARRIORS PAST Even in the most devastating and pain-filled moments, we have an opportunity to learn something about ourselves, our world, and the human spirit.

I think the VFW as a whole we are going to have to be more Family Orientated , the younger Veterans have children , so for them to attend VFW functions we have to include children and spouses more , anyway this is a positive step foward… Continue

VFW should turn their backs on Obama's speech!

I will be sorely disappointed if there is not a visible rejection of Obamacare at the National Convention. As a disabed Vietnam Vet, I avoided the Veterans organizations because all I saw was a lot of liquer being consumed, cheaply! I finally joined the American Legion, as they issued a policy condemning Illegal immigration, and have actually made some headway. If the VFW wants more members, I suggest you do the same and start standing against the "socialization of America" …

Sunday Driving

I had been stressed this week. Tests where unending, professor's where demanding, the deadline for the research papers were approaching, and I had a hard time balancing my schedule and keeping up with the requirements. I thought things would be better once Saturday arrived but that was not to be.

When Saturday came, it was family issues. My parents both wanted me to do some… Continue
