Who decides what changes come to our National Bylaws? You Do! There is no better example of “grass roots” power than our own VFW organization.
Understanding the “generation gap” will prevent falling into it!

Congratulations to all our comrades who have been elected by their peers to the esteemed position of Commander. Election to this position at any level of our organization is an honor that carries with it both responsibility and authority… but not in equal measure.
A Member Asks… I belong the the VFW Post in my hometown. I have been a member (former Jr Vice) for many years. I am currently on Active Duty in Washington DC. My dues are current. Can I vote in the up-coming April elections by mail/letter?
Spring is, at long last, in the air. One sure sign of that arrival is the steady increase in the number of motorcycles appearing each day on the streets and highways of Wisconsin. With their arrival comes renewed interest in forming VFWRG’s (VFW Rider Groups).

The question is often asked: “Does our Post need By-Laws?”
The short answer is: “Maybe. Maybe not.” It depends on your Post situation. No Post is truly without By-Laws. In the absence of a specific Post (or District, or County Council) By-Laws, our National By-Laws are sufficient to guide the individual units. They are, in fact, your Post By-Laws in lieu of your Post creating By-Laws of your own.

Dear Judge Advocate:
When our Quartermaster gives his financial report every month, he just states money received, money spent. He always states that if you want to see the complete report, the books are open for you to look at.
Our previous Quartermaster always gave a complete report and it was easy to hear and understand.
Are there any rules or regulations that we, as members, can invoke to make him give a complete report to our satisfaction? A person can’t help but to assume that something might be not on the up and up.
