Give this a play.
Now read on and take action.
location of our Washington, D.C. office allows us to monitor all
legislation affecting veterans, alert VFW membership to key legislation
under consideration and to actively lobby Congress and the
administration on veterans' issues. National Legislative Service advocates
on veterans' behalves. By testifying at congressional committee
hearings and interacting with congressional members, the VFW has played
an instrumental role in nearly every piece of veterans' legislation
passed since the beginning of the 20th Century. Everything we do on
Capitol Hill is with the VFW’s Priority Goals and veterans' well-being
in mind. With the strength of the more than 1.7 million members of the
VFW and its Auxiliary, our voice on the Hill cannot be ignored!
Among the VFW's most recent and important legislative victories was
making college education affordable for military service members with
the signing of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, and ensuring America's service
members and veteran receive the care they deserve by passing
the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act.
