The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced it will readjudicate claims for Veterans who served in the offshore waters of the Republic of Vietnam during the Vietnam War. This review is part of the Veterans Benefits Administration’s implementation of the November 5, 2020, U.S. District Court of the Northern District of California decision to readjudicate previously denied claims as applied in Nehmer vs. U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Veterans who were previously denied service connection for an herbicide related presumptive condition due to lack of in-country Vietnam service will automatically have their claims readjudicated.

Many VFW Posts are unable to utilize traditional fundraising methods and are in dire need of aid due to COVID-19. To better assists our Posts, the VFW Foundation is introducing the VFW Post Pandemic Relief Grant (PPRG). This is an opportunity for VFW Posts that own or lease their buildings to receive up to $2,500 in support toward costs such as Mortgage/rent, utility bills and property taxes. Posts will need to meet certain requirements to be eligible to receive funding from this program. These criteria can be found on page one of the application, which you can download here. Applications for the VFW Foundation Post Pandemic Relief Grant will be accepted starting 01 Oct 2020
Although we emphasize Buddy Poppies on Veterans Day and Memorial Day, it is important to realize that the distribution of Buddy Poppies should be a year-round exercise. Each time a Post participates in an activity where the public will be present, Buddy Poppies should be present as a fundraising tool and simply to recognize our fallen comrades. Where the VFW appears, Buddy Poppies should be a constant reminder that we will never forget those who have perished in the name of liberty. Just as “They Gave, Will You?” is a year-round thing, so should the distribution of VFW Buddy Poppies.
