For this month’s Commander’s Challenge, the top Post in each Division with the most New and Reinstated members between January 1st and January 31st will receive a $500 stipend deposited into the Post account. Remember that a New member is someone who has never been part of the VFW before, and a Reinstated member is one who has been unpaid for two full calendar years. Your Post Quartermaster can get a list of potential reinstates by using the Find Unpaid Members option under “Reporting” in the Online Membership System!
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group. Contact Michael (Coop) Cooperman at firstname.lastname@example.org to fill out an application

WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Persian Gulf War, Kosovo, War in Afghanistan, War in Iraq, War on Global Terror and other Peace-Keeping Expeditionary Campaigns throughout the globe.
On the battlefield, the military pledges to leave no soldier behind. As a Nation, let it be our pledge that when they return home, we leave no veteran behind.
In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
