I may not always believe in and trust our government, but I will ALWAYS believe and trust the American Soldier.  You have taken a sacred oath to protect the many FREEDOMS that so many of us take for granted.  Please understand that I am grateful for your sacrifice(s) and your service on my behalf.  It is an honor to call you "My Countrymen".

"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.

 VFW sponsorship of Scouting pays off!  The young Cub Scout receiving an award from his Cub Master at a Cub Scout Meeting in 1957 is none other than Dave Otter. After being a Cub Scout Dave went on to serve in Viet Nam, then returned to join Carleton VFW Post 4093 who was the sponsor of his Cub Scout Pack.  Dave is a Life Member of the VFW and serves as a Trustee.  So I guess Dave really has Come Home!

VFW Salutes United States Army for 241 Years of Service
Our nation’s soldiers are America’s true heroes.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – June 14, 2016, marks the 241st year of service from the United States Army. The U.S. Army has evolved drastically since it was originally organized as the Continental Army in 1775; battlefields have transformed, weaponry has evolved, faces have come and gone, military uniforms have varied, but one thing holds fast: the bravery and the heart of the individuals who wear the uniform, and their commitment to their mission.

What Others are Saying


The Officers

2014 - 2015

"Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime." I agree wholeheartedly that it is the dedication of a lifetime that defines true patriotism.  You all have given not only your time, dedication and effort, but—most importantly—your very being to the protection and advancement of this great country. You work tirelessly for the rights of the veterans who serve our country, while conducting the nation’s finest civic training to instill young future leaders with the knowledge, understanding and wisdom to govern this country.



A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way. ~John Maxwell
