Commander's Corner

Commander Ray Lopez

 

Comrades,

 

Thank you all for working so hard in your communities through advocacy and positioning your VFW Posts as a place for all veterans and their families. Our Department officers are working hard for you to meet any needs you have as you serve our veterans.


I ask you for helps in supporting a legislative initiative to provide Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment to Michigan veterans. Please sign this petition to let our legislators know that the VFW is supportive of this alternative treatment for veterans in need. Our voices matter, and together, our voices are louder.


I am continuously amazed by the spirit and relentless efforts you all make to serve Michigan veterans. I am so proud to be your commander and hope to see as many of you as possible at our upcoming State Convention. Thank you for your service!


Ray Lopez, State Commander, VFW Department of Michigan
