Your VFW can be whatever you want it to be, it is a direct reflection of its leadership and membership. Any VFW will welcome any veteran who wants to make a difference.
I want to help strengthen the veteran community locally, statewide, nationally, and in our legislature. I’m grateful for trailblazers before me. The Vietnam generation accomplished and endured so much in our organization and our nation; it’s astounding. This year, we are serving those who served.
Veterans that pass deserve to be honored. Someday I hope someone is there to do it for me, so we step up to (present military honors at funerals) so future generations will continue this tradition.
A satirical reflection by Author/Artist Phil Fehrenbacher
Phil enlisted in the Army in 1965 where you served for years in Vietnam. He became a graphic designer and has worked for the state of Oregon for 26 years. He retired in 2003 and started the Cartoon "In-Country". The cartoons reflect his experiences during his tour of duty in South Vietnam.
There is a new cartoon everyday.
