VFW Prepares for Annual Legislative Conference

VFW members around the country are preparing to rally in Washington, D.C., for the annual VFW Legislative Conference, March 2-6.

The VFW takes the voices of America’s veterans directly to the nation’s elected lawmakers during the VFW Legislative Conference.

Armed with the VFW’s Legislative Priority Goals for 2014, VFW members plan to visit with every congressional office, explaining in detail the VFW’s stance on a variety of veterans’ issues and stressing that our nation is still at war.

The week culminates with the testimony of VFW Commander-in-Chief Bill Thien before a special joint hearing of the House and Senate Veterans Affairs Committees on March 5, where Thien will lay out the VFW’s legislative agenda for the year.

VFW’s live stream of the conference will begin on March 3 at 6:00 p.m. (EST) with the annual Voice of Democracy Parade of Winners, followed by streaming video of VFW Commander-in-Chief Bill Thien’s testimony on March 5 at 2:00 p.m. (EST).
