As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group For you are the next generation to carry the torch of Veterans helping Veterans.
In the spring of 1915, shortly after losing a friend in Ypres, a Canadian doctor, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae was inspired by the sight of poppies growing in battle-scarred fields to write a now famous poem called 'In Flanders Fields'. After the First World War, the poppy was adopted as a symbol of Remembrance.
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.
Through the VFW Legacy Life Program, you can continue to support the struggle to help Veterans long after you have passed. Speak to your Post or District Legacy Life Chairman for more Information.
