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…Continue

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. We have stopped selling alcohol because the post had a reputation for being a place that only drunks went too and the members have put in about $15000.00 of their own money to make improvements. 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

To the Veterans of the Thomas Mihalis Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1079,
Throughout all wars we enjoy many blessings that result from the sacrifices of the men and women in uniform that have risked their lives to defend our freedoms. My family has a lot of appreciation and gratitude for those who continually fight for our freedom. We would like to take the opportunity during this Christmas season to make a donation to the Veterans of the Thomas Mihalis Post 1079.…
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?
