Budweiser is looking to do a “Hero’s Welcome” documentary with airing during Super Bowl 2014.
The soldier Budweiser chooses to honor with a TICKERTAPE parade will be the face of all the troops coming home this year.  It’s important that this soldier embodies the spirit of dedication, camaraderie; strength and goodness the American people want so badly to celebrate.  They’re looking for a family man, someone who is revered by his hometown and loved by his family and friends.  There looking for someone who is gracious in the face of adversity and adulation alike.  In short, he’s got to be okay with surprises.  Click here for more information.

Department of New York As you know, this November the VFW Foundation has again teamed up with Burger King® Franchisees across the nation to raise money for the VFW Unmet Needs program. This annual Burger King® fundraiser is the key to ensuring the VFW can continue its work to assist veterans and their families when they fall on hard financial times. The idea is simple. During the month of November, participating Burger King® locations invite patrons to donate to the Unmet Needs program at their time of purchase. This simple concept has garnered a huge response from patriotic Americans - allowing Burger King® to donate more than $2 million to the program to date.    Burger King® Franchisees are a great friend to our organization. So please, this November take a moment to visit your local participating Burger King® location. Let them know that you are a proud VFW member and personally thank them for their continued support. And please, strongly encourage the Posts in your Department to do the same. I can’t stress enough the impact that the generosity of Burger King® Franchisees has had on the lives of the thousands of veterans, service members and families that we’ve been proud to help. Please help us show our appreciation of their support FOR VETERANS. Keep up the good work. Yours in Comradeship, Bill Thien VFW Commander-in-Chief


We were recently notified that some VFW Posts are selling and/or giving away Army surplus equipment loaned to them instead of returning this loaned equipment back to TACOM as set forth in the Army regulations and guidance provided by the VFW for the program. Important to note is that it is a federal violation and could be subject to legal prosecution if Army weapons and/or static display equipment assets currently logged into possession of VFW Posts are lost, transferred, given away, sold or used in any unauthorized manner.  
Heres the Memo....     Heres the RULES... 
   From Dept HQ.... Is Your Post Guilty...??? See the list!
Our small group of retired Veterans makes metalized film window stickers and magnetic vehicle plaques honoring Veterans of all eras. They are called VetSignias and are designed to give Veterans 'every-day' visibility.
