VFW Member Dispatch
July 2017

In just over a week, thousands of delegates, dignitaries and notable guests will converge in New Orleans for the 118th VFW National Convention, and with the help of livestreaming and social media, we’re making sure you don’t miss out on any of the weeklong convention events whether you’re attending or not.

 Livestreaming at www.vfw.org/convention begins Sunday, July 23 at 8:30 a.m. (CDT) with the annual memorial service, and will continue throughout the duration of the convention, culminating with the election and installation of new VFW officers on Wednesday.

Be sure to follow us on social media or log on to www.vfw.org for regular updates during the convention. Look for #VFWConvention on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
