2016-2017 Veterans & Military Support Programs
Once again the
Veterans of Foreign Wars is again in the forefront of patriotism as the
organization and its members find ways to show support for America and her
armed forces. There is no more important program of the Veterans of Foreign
Wars. As our Nation's fight against terrorism continues, thousands of our
active-duty , Reserve and National Guard
service members will be deployed stateside and overseas for a tough
battle. With continued budget cuts, supporting
our troops now is more important than ever before. It is our duty as Americans and Veterans to
do our part to keep their spirits and morale up, and hope these young Veterans
will return to be a part of our great organization.
of Michigan VFW is proud to be part of this ongoing program set up to assist
our troops. We have adopted units from
Michigan and have been sending I pads, Game
boys, CDs & DVDs and the players. We have sent laptop computers and digital cameras to our veterans that are hospitalized overseas
and state side. We work with Family Support Groups so that the
family members of our troops at home are helped out too. Donations not earmarked for a specific fund
will be put into the V&MSP fund to be used for the most needed area of
support as determined by our National Organization.
