VFW Member Dispatch
November 2018

Each Veterans Day, Americans come together to honor the contributions and sacrifices of the more than 23 million veterans and service members ... those who bear the burden of battle so others may live peacefully.

As someone who has worn or continues to wear the uniform of our great country, you bravely served when most never will. You have fought to ensure America continues to be the land of the free. Veterans Day is YOUR holiday, and while we know you didn’t do it for the glory or praise, you deserve every single bit of recognition you receive.

On behalf of the VFW, thank you for your dedicated service.
