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".

 
 
 
District 6 Meeting

Location: Monroe, MI

Our District 6 Meeting will be hosted by Monroe Post 1138, located at 400 Jones Avenue, Monroe, MI. This is an important meeting since we will have elections and installation of Post and Auxiliary Officers for 2017-18. More details will be post as the date nears. Check back.
District 6 Picnic
Date: 5/20/2017
Location: To be determined

The Commander and Auxiliary President Dawn Shock have decided that rather than have the traditional "testimonial" we would rather hos a District Picnic where all the Post Commanders and Auxiliary President from the 6th District will be celebrated. We want you to bring all the members of your post and their families to a fun day. After all it is the individual Post Commanders and Auxiliary Presidents along with their members that do the work that makes for a successful year. So bring the kids and grandchildren out for a fun day. We are currently looking at a location such as a metro park for this event so suggestions are welcome. Anyone know how to play "blooper ball" Yeah - go ahead and google it!. I never heard of Euchre until I came to Michigan.

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.

WWII
Korean War
Vietnam War
Persian Gulf War
  Kosovo
War in Afghanistan
War in Iraq
War on Global Terror

and other Peace-Keeping Expeditionary Campaigns throughout the globe.

 

"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.
