In 1988 the Department of Veterans Affairs was elevated to Cabinet-level status, culminating years of dedicated, persistent effort by VFW leadership. This was a major victory for all veterans and evidence of your organization's power and prestige in the Nation's Capitol.
With your on-going support and loyalty, and with this new recognition, the VFW's constant fight to protect and enhance veteran's rights and entitlements will go forward with mounting strength and renewed confidence.
For more information on the activities of the VFW National Legislative Office, write to:
The Veterans of Foreign Wars Political Action Committee (VFW/PAC) continuously follows the voting record of our Legislators in Washington, D.C. regarding Veteran's Entitlements and National Security issues. To receive the VFW/PAC endorsement, members of Congress must have favorable voting records in both areas.
Each year those Legislators who understand or even appreciate the sacrifices made by combat veterans and their families become fewer and fewer as our old friends in Congress are replaced by younger non-veterans.
It is, therefore, more important than ever that we keep in office those Legislators who feel as we do and vote accordingly. It is particularly important since we are competing with thousands of other PAC organizations.
Your support and contributions are vital if VFW/PAC is going to be successful. The money raised is used to assist our VFW/PAC endorsed candidates with their very expensive election campaigns; thus assuring them that we appreciate the stand they have taken in our behalf and that it is important to us that they be re-elected.
Donations may be made by individual members, Auxiliaries and Posts by having fund raising projects on these levels. Earmark all checks VFW/PAC and mail to VFW/PAC, Suite 506, 200 Maryland Ave., N.E., Washington, DC 20002.
Let us all get behind this program and help to "Celebrate Freedom" by "Climbing to Greater Heights" in our support of the VFW/PAC.
