Well I am coming up on a year as a member of the VFW. In that year I have been voted in as the Post Jr. Vice. I have participated in the Memorial day ceremony, a post picnic, Veterans Day parade which was just awsome, and I have been to every meeting.

It has been rewarding.

The best experiance to date has been… Continue

VFW Commander Refutes M.T. Columnist

Columnist Robert F. Dorr has once again missed the mark regarding the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. ["Some vets still more equal than others," Nov. 16].
