Monday, September 29, is VFW Day, established in 1899. We, the members of this great organization celebrate our birthday.
We have much to be proud of, to list all our accomplishments would fill several pages, which this paper cannot possibly print.
To put it plain and simple, our motto is “Honor the dead by helping the living.” Our VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) objectives
* To ensure the national security through maximum military strength.
* To assist the widows and orphans (of deceased veterans) and the dependents of disabled and needy veterans.
* To promote Americanism through education in patriotism and constructive service to communities which we live.
* The VFW is a good outfit. If eligible, please join; you’ll be glad you did.
God bless the VFW and all our veterans.
