Commander's Message 74

I would like to thank District 2 for electing me to be your District 2 Commander. As a Vietnam U. S. Marine Corp combat veteran and as being a member of the VFW since 1969 and Past Commander of VFW Post 6699, I have a good understanding of what the VFW stands for. With a united VFW, we can do a lot to help our fellow veterans. With our numbers decreasing each year, it is a top priority to build up our membership. Along with membership, we have to try harder to get our younger veterans involved! I will be sending out a quarterly newsletter and I will try to update our District 2 web on a regular basis. You are more than welcome to phone, text or email me any questions or concerns you would like to address with me. (paulcfp@aol.com) or 201-320-3210 I am thankful that we have a good team of officers at District 2 and very active committee chair people that put in a lot of time and energy throughout the year for District 2 and you. This year we are going to work more closely with the President of our Auxiliary, Jan West and their members. Jan has told me they would love to work together with us this year. There will be a budget and committee meeting on June 26 at 6:30 pm at the Paramus VFW, E.6 Winslow Place, Paramus, N. J. Our next District 2 meeting is on Wednesday, July 26, 2017 at Hasbrouck Heights Post 4591 at 7:30 p.m. At this meeting we will have Bill Thomson conduct training for all post commanders. Overall, I am positive we can make 2017 – 2018 a very productive year. Paul R. Thompson District 2 Commander ...

VFW National Home for Children 100

The VFW National Home for Children serves as a living memorial to America’s veterans by helping our nation’s veteran and military families. Since its founding in 1925, the VFW National Home for Children has grown from an old frame farm house to a sprawling campus with playgrounds, park areas, and multiple buildings, including single-family homes, a community center and gymnasium, child care center, guest lodge, chapel and administrative offices. The National Home’s services have also evolved to meet the changing needs of America’s military and veterans’ families. Through our Helpline and our on-campus programs, we are able to help families and children through times of crisis, both here on our beautiful campus and in their own communities nationwide.
