Dear Friend,

It’s unconscionable!

Our leaders in Congress are actually considering cutting 10 critical benefits that affect our nation’s service members, veterans and their families. VFW is calling it the “10 for 10” plan—cutting 10 benefits to pay for 10 years of war. Read more about it.

We can’t let this happen! VFW needs you to sign this important petition. We’ll let Congress know we have an army of patriots behind us who won’t let them level unjust funding cuts on our defenders and their families!

Sign the Petition

America’s debt crisis calls for tough decisions. That’s a given. But there is no way we’ll allow them to make budget cuts on the backs of our veterans.

You can also help by getting your Facebook friendsinvolved! We need every patriot to stand up and be heard!

“Peace will come when ‘they’ love their children more than they hate us.”  Golda Meir

Praying for peace.

“Pray for the bereaved families of those who gave their lives for our freedom”

‎=( … as Ronald Regan said best: “They were not afraid to stand up for their country or, no matter how difficult and slow the journey might be, to give to others that last, best hope of a better future.

We cannot and will not dishonor them now and the sacrifices they’ve made by failing to remain as faithful to the cause of freedom and the pursuit of peace as they have been. 

 I will not ask you to pray for the dead, because they’re safe in God’s loving arms and beyond need of our prayers. I would like to ask you all—wherever you may be in this blessed land—to pray for these wounded young men and to pray for the bereaved families of those who gave their lives for our freedom.

God bless you, and God bless America.
