VFW to Host First Twitter Chat: Your Questions Wanted!
Join in on the discussion to get your questions answered
April 12, 2013
Many questions loom surrounding
potential cuts to government programs geared to assist America’s veterans and
service members as a result of sequestration. Armed with its 2013 Legislative
Priority Goals, the VFW will continue to combat all changes or cuts to programs
that could have an adverse effect on our nation’s heroes.
We want you to know exactly
where we stand on the issues. So, we are hosting our first VFW Twitter Chat
Friday, April 19, 2013, at 10:30 a.m. EDT. The VFW will answer participants’
questions regarding the VFW’s 2013
Legislative Priority Goals for one hour in
real-time via the VFW’s National Twitter page, @VFWHQ, using
the hashtag #ASKVFW.
This chat will allow
participants to gain insight into initiatives the VFW proudly supports and
advocates for, and gain a better understanding of how hard we’re working in
Washington. All you’ll need is a Twitter account to participate, which you can
register for at www.twitter.com.
The VFW hopes to further engage
and inform its online community through Twitter chats on a variety of veterans’
issues in the future. Recently, the VFW issued two highly successful “Action
Alerts” to its members and supporters via social media. One issue involved the
reinstatement of military Tuition Assistance. The other, was a call to lower
the precedence of the Distinguished Warfare Medal (DWM). VFW support was
unrelenting in both instances. Military Tuition programs were quickly
reinstated and the DWM was called under review by the Secretary of Defense.
Follow the VFW on Twitter for more information about upcoming Twitter chats, and
don’t forget to join us LIVE on April 19.
