Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to SUPPORT OUR VETERANS!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
As yesterday's Defenders of Freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars honor ALL Veterans of wars past and present. We thank our brothers and sisters in arms for their service. We honor the sacrifice of those who gave their lives in service to our country and we honor the ones they left behind. WE REMEMBER THEM. The Prisoners of War, Those Missing in Action, Those Killed in Action, The HEROES .
Information about how the VFW is looking out for our Sister Veterans!
The purpose of the VFW Riders is to support the VFW by promoting the public visibility of the VFW, its programs,and the VFW National Home through community service and participation in veteran's service events, through responsible motorcycling in our community. We will promote motorcycle riding and veteran's service with an active membership and provide a positive model for motorcyclists and veterans alike.
In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you, from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow, In Flanders fields.

That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. - President Abraham Lincoln
On the battlefield, the military pledges to leave no soldier behind. As a Nation, let it be our pledge that when they return home, we leave no veteran behind.
