2015-2016 National Legislative Ambassador
All Politics Are Local
The Veterans of Foreign Wars recently held its annual Legislative Conference in Washington D.C. How wonderful it was to see so many members, both VFW and Auxiliary, in attendance.
Speaking out on behalf of our veterans, making the issues understood and providing information to our Legislators was made all the easier by arming ourselves with the VFW Priority Goals and the VFW Talking Points.
Interacting with members of Senate and Congress is vitally important to ensure passage of key legislation which will improve the lives of our military, veterans and their families. Mr. Bob Wallace, Director of the VFW Washington Office, reminds us, however, that all politics are local.
The sharing of information that’s happening at the national level should be happening at the local level as well. The VFW Priority Goals and VFW TalkingPaper/Fact Sheet are valuable tools which can assist you in your everyday interactions at city, county and state levels of government. These important tools are easily accessed through the VFW and the VFW Auxiliary websites.
While you are advocating for our veterans, don’t forget to sign up members and your family and friends for the VFW Action Corp Weekly enewsletter. Anyone who is interested in veteran’s issues will appreciate this informative weekly enewsletter.
