November, 2017 Dear Sample, Please forgive me if I seem a bit anxious … Did you ever receive the beautiful 2018-2019 VFW Auxiliary “American Songbirds” Calendar I recently sent to you? I also included a bonus VFW Auxiliary “Pets” Calendar for you to pass along to a family member or friend. I wanted to thank you for your loyal membership in the VFW Auxiliary and your continued generosity. I was also hoping these wonderful VFW Auxiliary Calendars would inspire you to send a gift of $10, $15 or even $20 to support the many life-changing programs in your Department. Because of your past caring support, I have also included a special ornament and convenient calendar card for you today on behalf of the brave men and women you help. If our letters have crossed in the mail, please accept my deepest thanks. If not, I do hope you’ll send a gift today to help our heroes, especially those severely injured in war. Your generosity means so much, especially at this time of year. Happy holidays to you and yours,

How YOU can make a difference for America and her proud veterans . . .

The VFW Auxiliary depends more and more on patriotic citizens to help fulfill our mission. You may be surprised at how much one person can accomplish. Here are just some of the things you can do that really make a difference.

. . . Displaying Your Flag.

Show support for the nation, our troops and veterans by displaying the U.S. flag on all patriotic holidays. Encourage others in your community to display our country’s most sacred symbol. Get involved with the VFW Auxiliary Americanism Program and educate fellow citizens about America’s proud heritage. You can also visit heroes.vfw.org/flag to print a free U.S. flag poster to display.

. . .Voting.

Throughout the generations, veterans have protected our right to vote. Encourage members of your community to take this civic duty seriously. Be a part of the democratic process by working the polls on Election Day or offer a ride to the polls to someone who doesn’t have transportation.

. . .Volunteering.

. . . Supporting Our Troops.

The VFW Military Assistance Program boosts the morale of military members and their families by hosting events year round, such as heartfelt send-offs and homecoming celebrations. To find out how you can get involved, get in touch with a local VFW Post or visit www.vfw.org to find the location nearest you.

. . . Getting Involved.

VFW Auxiliary programs rely on patriotic friends from across the nation like you to get involved. Find out more about our programs that support veterans and troops, inspire remembrance, uplift communities and educate young people. For more information on any of these programs, visit www.vfwauxiliary.org.

Schedule a visit to a lonely or homebound veteran. Join hospital and VAVS volunteers and visit VA Medical Centers or get involved with service projects like “Make a Difference Day.” Lend a hand to veterans who are not hospitalized but still have special needs through the VFW Auxiliary Veterans and Family Support Program. You can also visit heroes.vfw.org/volunteer to find the VA facility nearest you for volunteer opportunities.

. . . Paying Tribute.

Remind others why we must protect and honor fellow veterans. Participate in the “Buddy”® Poppy Program by distributing the official flower of the VFW at public locations. You’ll help raise awareness and support for needy veterans and their dependents, as well as the VFW National Home for Children.

. . . Inspiring Young People.

America’s young people need to understand what service to this country means. The VFW Auxiliary also recognizes the achievements of students through the Young American Creative Patriotic Art Contest, and assists the VFW with the Patriot’s Pen and the Voice of Democracy contests.

. . . Lobbying.

Volunteer for the Action Corps, a grassroots campaign to keep veterans’ issues in the minds of lawmakers on Capitol Hill. Write, call, or visit your elected officials to ensure their continued support for our country’s heroes.

How to Display The United States Flag Ten Guidelines 1. The flag should be hoisted briskly and lowered ceremoniously. 2. The flag is never allowed to touch the ground or the floor. 3. When hung over a sidewalk on a rope extending from a building to a pole, the union stars are always away from the building. 4. When vertically hung over the center of the street, the flag always has the union stars to the north in an east/west street, and to the east in a north/south street. 5. The flag of the United States of America should be at the center and at the highest point of the group when a number of flags of states or localities or pennants of societies are grouped and displayed from staffs. 6. The flag should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds but always allowed to fall free. 7. The flag should be displayed at half-staff until noon on Memorial Day then raised to the top of the staff. 8. Never fly the flag upside down except as a signal of distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property. 9. The flag is never flown in inclement weather except when using an all-weather flag. 10. The flag can be flown every day from sunrise to sunset and at night if illuminated properly.
