MESSAGE FROM OUR STATE COMMANDER TONY PURDY
VISION FOR THE VETERANS OF FOREIGN WARS
We will strive to ensure veterans are respected for their service, receive their earned entitlements and are recognized for the sacrifices they and their loved ones have made on behalf of this great country. And to ensure their children spouse ‘orphans and widows are taken care of this year, our special project is the Florida cottage in Eaton Rapids MI at the VFW National home for Children. The home is where families left behind by war can remain together, keeping the family circle intact even when the serviceman or women didn’t come home
To leverage values of Commitment, Excellence, Integrity, and Selfless Service to strengthen our dedication of advocating for our veterans.
Together We Can!!!
Tony H. Purdy
State Commander, Department of Florida VFW
State Adjutant/Quartermaster’s Message
Comrades, it is now time to work our membership list and work them hard and fast.
We have a goal of reaching 92+ % by January 31, 2020 and we will make that happen.
Make those phone calls now, Go and knock on the doors of our members you haven’t seen and ask how they are doing. See if they need any help because we all know Veterans are very proud people and will not ask for help.
Sometimes all it takes is showing them some love and that we care. If they confide in you that they need help use your relief fund. That is what it is there for.
We can do this Florida, WHY, because we are Second to None and once again this year we will get our Department to 100 + %
Commanders at all levels please get out there and continue to send the most important message we have.
Veterans of Foreign Wars
"NO ONE DOES MORE FOR VETERANS”
" True heroism is remarkably sober, ver undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost."
In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
"Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared to death."
