Where are my fellow Veterans? Those who went to Iraq or Afghanistan?
This is a personal challenge to those veterans! The VFW in your community needs your help and we can not do it without you. Your ideas, your active lifestyle, your knowledge, and your ideas. You want to ask well what does the VFW do? That is a good question. We are an organization the works with veterans and their family. We participate in the community, hold regular meetings, We train and have service officers that help through the claims system. Basically if you have ideas we will listen. Not one Post Commander is above any member. The Post officers are elected. Commanders overseas the post operations, We vote on actions that we take. We do Flag Retirements, Chili and BBQ cook offs. But what we are missing is our young veterans. At least for me we need more family activities. I sat outside with a kiddry pool full of crawfish one fund raising activity. At the beginning of each meeting we ask is there any member is Distress? We provide support, We have patriotic activities and we have Teacher Awards.
