"Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime." I agree wholeheartedly that it is the dedication of a lifetime that defines true patriotism.  You all have given not only your time, dedication and effort, but—most importantly—your very being to the protection and advancement of this great country. You work tirelessly for the rights of the veterans who serve our country, while conducting the nation’s finest civic training to instill young future leaders with the knowledge, understanding and wisdom to govern this country.

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.

The Department 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.

                 We are asking each Post to donate what they can to help out our Veterans and our Troops,                                                      Please remember you can use your relief fund for these purposes ! 

 

All Donations must be sent to Department of Michigan to receive All State Credit.
