“The needs of our Veterans are radically shifting.” – Iraq Veteran
Most of our local VFW and American Legion post members are Korean and Vietnam Veterans. The men and women we see laying red poppies on soldiers’ graves, raising flags on Memorial Day and directing traffic at our county fairs. But in the last two decades, memberships have plummeted due to age and the inability to attract the younger generation of Veterans.
“Our desire to serve does not end when we leave the service.” – Vietnam Veteran
