"Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime." I agree wholeheartedly that it is the dedication of a lifetime that defines true patriotism.  You all have given not only your time, dedication and effort, but—most importantly—your very being to the protection and advancement of this great country. You work tirelessly for the rights of the veterans who serve our country, while conducting the nation’s finest civic training to instill young future leaders with the knowledge, understanding and wisdom to govern this country.

"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.

It All Started when VFW4659 member, Bruce Hartung, Vietnam Veteran, Purple Heart(s) recipient and USMC Sniper Extraordinaire, decided to paint the parking block in front of the "Combat Wounded Veteran Parking Only" like the ribbon so it would match the Medal.  From that point forward there was no stopping this Marine, It is rumored he was out there just after dawn covered in camouflage paint, so no one would see him and no cars were parked in the lot.  He began the pain staking, time consuming job of priming/masking/painting/ and repainting each parking block until each parking block represented at least one of our members hard earned awards which give them the Privilege to belong to the VFW.
The ribbons below are listed, pictured from left to right on the screen.

Vietnam Veteran Elected VFW National Commander
Vietnam Veteran Elected VFW National Commander Ending sequestration will remain a top priority under new leadership KANSAS CITY, Mo. (July 26, 2017) – The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States concluded its 118th National Convention today with the election of Keith Harman of Delphos, Ohio, as its new national commander. Harman served in the U.S. Army from 1967 to 1969, including service in Vietnam as a crew chief and door gunner on Huey helicopters. During his acceptance speech, he spoke highly of the nearly 1.7 million members of VFW and its Auxiliary, citing the members’ camaraderie as the driving force to the success of the organization. “Every member of our organization has walked the talk, and every member of our great Auxiliary has lived the fear of having a loved one downrange. I believe in what the VFW stands for — to take care of veterans, service members and their families — and I am proud to be a part of it, and honored to lead it,” the new national commander told the crowd. Harman has been a member of the VFW for 34 years, belonging to VFW Post 3035 in Delphos, Ohio. He has served in elected and appointed positions at Post, District and Department (state) levels, and achieved All-American status during his year as commander of the VFW Department of Ohio in 2004. Throughout his remarks, he stressed the importance of the VFW’s work to those it serves, and praised today’s service members’ resolve and dedication. “Sixteen years ago, no one would have thought it possible for America to fight a nonstop, two-front war for so long without restarting the draft, but we have — they have — and they continue to do so magnificently, which is a testament not only to their patriotism but also to their character,” he said. The national commander also discussed his recent fact-finding trip to Southeast Asia. It was his first return to Vietnam after ending his military service there 49 years prior.

VFW Salutes United States Army for 241 Years of Service
Our nation’s soldiers are America’s true heroes.
 
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – June 14, 2016, marks the 241st year of service from the United States Army. The U.S. Army has evolved drastically since it was originally organized as the Continental Army in 1775; battlefields have transformed, weaponry has evolved, faces have come and gone, military uniforms have varied, but one thing holds fast: the bravery and the heart of the individuals who wear the uniform, and their commitment to their mission.
