ATTENTION VFW ACTION CORPS MEMBERS!

 

Due to your hard work and dedicated advocacy, many provisions supporting service members, veterans, and their families were passed in the  National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2022. We want to highlight a few provisions that could affect you or many of those on whose behalf you advocate. The NDAA contains over 700 provisions, including several pieces of VFW-supported legislation added as amendments.

BECOME A VETERANS' ADVOCATE

Our National VFW organization is working hard to protect those benefits and entitlements that we have earned through our military service to our nation. To make this program successful, we need as many of you as possible to participate and get involved as a "Veterans Advocate."  The purpose of this program is to inform our members of the issues so we can take action by contacting (writing letters, sending emails, making phone calls, attending town hall meetings, etc.) our legislators on issues affecting veterans, active duty service members and our families. Our elected officials need to hear from us. If they don't, they will assume that it isn't important to us, make the decisions for us, and we will have to live with the consequences.

  • To become a "Veterans Advocate," join the VFW Action Corps by clicking on http://capwiz.com/vfw/mlm/signup.htm.  By doing so, you will receive the Washington Weekly E-Newsletter and all VFW Action Alerts.
  • To report on Veterans activities in your area, such as legislative events, town halls, veteran’s advisory committees, rallies, etc., send an email briefly describing the event or activity to Bob Jones, the Department of Idaho's Legislative Committee Member, at arcticcirclerexb@aol.com.
  • To seek answers to questions you may have on legislative issues, or obtain more information, write to Comrade Jones at the above email address, or phone him at Tel. 208-356-0255.
Thanks for all you have done and all you continue to do for Veterans and their families.
