VFW National Home for Children

Become a Life Member or an Associate Life Member and create a lasting bond between yourself and the mission of the National Home.

There are two types of membership:

1) VFW and VFW Auxiliary members and organizations are eligible to become Life Members. Life Members may vote for the trustees who represent their National Home District and approve any proposed changes to our bylaws and articles of incorporation.

2) Any individual or organization wishing to support the National Home’s mission can become an Associate Life Member. Associate Life Members do not have voting privileges.    

Both member types receive a membership certificate and wallet card.  

Life Member Pins can also be purchased for an additional $5.  

Life memberships can be purchased by using Visa, Mastercard or Discover Card. 

*Please note that effective January 1, 2019, the cost to purchase a membership is increasing to $50 and will include a Life Member pin. 

From the Chaplain’s Pen ……………………...........… Chaplain Al Lowe

Are there things you do not like? I have a few things I do not like. I do not like being told an untruth. I do not like complaining about the incompletion of a job, or the intentionally doing the job incorrectly. I do not like some of the thing’s others might like – especially this past week as I was watching the Senate’s debate on the Supreme Courts Judge.

But I cannot dwell on the things I do not like. Generally, that turns out to be something I cannot control and ultimately a waste of time. So, I wish to think about the things I do like. More than like, I actually love all Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines. I love their commitment to their mission and the quality in which they do it. I truly love the sacrifice of these Great Americans and their families. I love it that they will give of their time and effort for the betterment of our country.

Thinking of my country, I love my country. I love our flag and those who will stand and salute it, those who show honor and respect to the National Colors. I love the mission which God has given me to share the gospel to the military.

And I love my wife, children and grandchildren. I love the veterans of the VFW and what we do, that for which we stand. Finally, I love the opportunity to invite you to share your love by becoming a Comrade of the VFW.

When I get to thinking about it, there is so much more I love and not. How about you.

Bible Verse Of The Month

Matthew - Chapter 5 - Verses -11-12

 "Blessed are you when people insult you,

persecute you and falsely say all kinds of

evil against you because of me. Rejoice and

be glad, because great is your reward in heaven,

for in the same way they persecuted the prophets

who were before you."
