An American holiday observed on the last Monday of May, honoring men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.
The VFW was the first veterans’ organization to adopt the poppy and develop a national distribution campaign. 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.
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
August Meeting Scheduled
The next regular Post meeting will be held at 11:00 am at the VFW Alabama State Headquarters at 1231 Carmichael Way in Montgomery (near Perry Hill Rd). With the continued closure of our regular meeting place at the Golden Corral we needed to find a place to temporarily conduct meetings.
