Dedicated to the memory of the men who fought and died in France during World War I, the Poppies have become the true symbol of all those who have given their lives in our nation’s wars. The Poppy memorial flower is distributed by veterans’ organizations in Europe, in America, and most of the countries of the British Commonwealth. Since 1922, the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States has conducted an annual distribution of “Buddy” Poppies to raise funds for its charitable programs on behalf of the needy and disabled veterans. Today, Buddy Poppies are distributed by Posts of the VFW in every state of the union and in dozens of other countries.
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.
Don't forget to bring a dish to pass!
...we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.
WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Persian Gulf War, Kosovo, War in Afghanistan, War in Iraq, War on Global Terror and other Peace-Keeping Expeditionary Campaigns throughout the globe.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. - John 15:13

That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. - President Abraham Lincoln
