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.
ATTENTION: CORONA VIRUS - 19
We have received several phone calls regarding canceling meetings and/or gatherings. The bottom line is it's up to the membership. Commanders need to call, email, etc., to check with your line officers and those members who generally come to the meetings to get a vote on what you want to do. When making your decision, please be advised that Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has signed an executive order to cancel all events over 50 people. The mandate began Friday, March 13 at 5 p.m. and last through Sunday, April 5 at 5 p.m.
If you decide to continue with business as usual, please inform the membership if they're sick or those with a compromised immune system to stay at home. If you decide to close or cancel meetings, please let Department know along with Norman Mauldin at email@example.com or (248) 767-3260.
Here is an excerpt from a letter received from National regarding this issue ...."We all must exercise calm and flexibility in the wake of this concern. Posts and Districts must still fulfill their duties and responsibilities to elect officers for the ensuing year prior to their respective Department Conventions, but all should be flexible in when and how those responsibilities are met.At the end of the day, the VFW has a job to do and a solemn promise to keep to those veterans, service members, and their families for which we work. Now more than ever we must find solutions in the face of adversity and strive to meet the needs of those who rely on the vital services we provide."
