Opportunities for Memorial Day - Monday, May 29, 4th of July and Veterans Day Saturday, November 11. Let's continue this long tradition for awareness, support and raising money to support our veterans and their families.

If you work at an office, know a retail space or other location willing to display a bowl of Poppy's for donations, please contact Sr. Vice Commander: Rex Brown so he can plan on having everything available to help our cause!

Among all the flowers that evoke the memories and emotions of war is the red poppy, which became associated with war after the publication of a poem written by Col. John McCrae of Canada. The poem, "In Flander's Field," describes blowing red fields among the battleground of the fallen.

For more than 75 years, the VFW's Buddy Poppy program has raised millions of dollars in support of veterans' welfare and the well being of their dependents.

The VFW conducted its first poppy distribution before Memorial Day in 1922, becoming the first veterans' organization to organize a nationwide distribution. The poppy soon was adopted as the official memorial flower of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States.



VFW Action Corps Weekly provided by VFW National publishes precise and timely articles on veteran matters, legislation, health and so much more. These timely articles may have a direct impact in your life and keep you current on veteran affairs.
