VFW Takes on Capitol Hill During its Annual Legislative Conference

The conference runs March 1-5


VFW members around the country are preparing to take on Washington, D.C. for the VFW’s annual Legislative Conference March 1-5.

Every year, the VFW takes the voices of America’s veterans directly to the nation’s elected lawmakers to remind them of the promises they made and to ensure they remain focused on the many issues that affect the veteran community.

Armed with the VFW’s Legislative Priority Goals for 2015, VFW members visit with their state representatives, explaining in detail the VFW’s stance on a variety of veterans’ issues and continuing the conversation about what it means to properly take care of veterans, service members and their families. 

The week culminates with VFW National Commander John Stroud’s testimony before a special joint hearing of the House and Senate Veterans Affairs Committees on March 4, where Stroud will lay out the VFW’s legislative agenda for the year.

The VFW will be streaming live so you don’t miss a thing! Make sure to watch on March 2 at 6:00 p.m. (EST) for the Voice of Democracy Parade of Winners, followed by the delayed streaming of the commander-in-chief’s testimony on March 4 at 2:00 p.m. Visit www.vfw.org/LegislativeConference to access the stream directly, and if you miss the live feed, catch up at your leisure by using the “on-demand” feature.
