Conrades;

At the start of January, the National Headquarters instituted a Membership Grant Program to incentivize Posts to bring in more New and Reinstated members and help us reach this year’s membership goals. Commander-Chief Fritz Mihelcic has made a video that we’ve been asked to share, and we’re asking you to assist us by sharing the Facebook post below so that your Districts and Posts are all aware of this initiative and do their part to maintain our membership strengths.

OUR MISSION

Veterans of Foreign Wars Mission Statement

Honor the dead by helping the living

The VFW traces its roots back to 1899 when veterans of the Spanish-American War (1898) and the Philippine insurrection (1899-1902) founded local organizations to secure rights and benefits for their service.

The VFW provides numerous services to military service members and their families.

• MAP has helped fund Farewell and Welcome Home gatherings for military units worldwide.
• Operation Uplink provides free, pre-paid phone cards to service members.
• Unmet Needs can give a one-time grant up to $1,500 for qualifying service members and their families experiencing financial hardship.

Flags and flag education are essential elements of the VFW's Citizenship Education program.

Fostering patriotism and honoring America's veterans on Patriotic Days: Memorial Day, lndependence Day, Patriots Day, Loyalty Day, Veterans Day and POW/MlA Recognition day

Constructive Community Service is a founding VFW tenet with volunteerism benefiting education, the environment, health sciences, and civic projects. The VFW's citizenship education program is designed to stimulate an interest in America's history, its traditions, and institutions, as well as promote patriotism. The VFW also partners with the National Rifle Association, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, lnternational Association of Firefighters, the Salvation Army and Boy Scouts of America.

The VFW's Citizenship Education program arms teachers with school activities and resources designed to teach America's youth about patriotism and service and about the contributions of our nation's veterans in preserving peace.

VFW Scholarship Programs include Voice of Democracy, Patriot's Pen, and VFW Military Family Scholarship. Every year, hundreds of thousands of students participate in garnering more than $3.1 million in scholarships and incentives.

The VFW's presence on Capitol Hill allows VFW officials to monitor and lobby Congress for legislative action targeted toward maintaining a strong national defense and improving military benefits and quality of life for all veterans, including those currently serving in the active-duty military, the National Guard and the Reserves.

One of the VFW's most successful legislative push was making college education affordable for military service members with the signing of the 1944 Gl Bill of Rights, and in 1984, the signing of the Montgomery GI Bill.

For more than 75 years, the VFW's Buddy Poppy program has raised millions of dollars in support of veterans' welfare and the well being of their dependents.

Cost of Buddy Poppies to VFW units provides compensation to the veterans who assemble the poppies, provides financial assistance in maintaining state and national veterans' rehabilitation and service programs, and partially supports the VFW National Home for orphans and widows of our nation's veterans.

Palm Boulder Highway’s Veterans Funeral & Memorial Planning
 
The personal sacrifices made by members of the armed forces cannot be overestimated. We deeply appreciate those who have served our country with courage and selflessness, and we at Palm Boulder Highway Mortuary & Cemetery in Henderson, NV are honored to do our part in turn by caring for military veterans and their families.
 
 
If you are a veteran or the spouse, parent or child of a veteran, it is important to be aware of the benefits that may be available to you. It is also important to know that these benefits do not come automatically and must be requested in advance, typically through applications and forms outlining service history and burial intent. We have decades of experience planning funerals for veterans and can help with this process. We can also help ensure that you or your veteran loved one is honored with a proper military funeral as well as personal touches that reflect his or her unique personality.
