Team, I'm excited to announce two new training videos which addresses some of the reoccurring questions we have been getting. The 1st video is how the new VMS donation process works. Only QMs can make the donation through OMS. Please share this far and wide with your Districts and Posts. Feel free to reach out if any questions. Yours in Comradeship, Lynn W. Rolf III Programs Director Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States 406 W 34th Street, Kansas City, Missouri 64111 o:816.968.1116 C: 913.290.1754
This Video is for Department QMs on how the new Buddy Poppy ordering system works and all the features of how to order for a Department or Posts and Auxiliary. Lastly, I will walk you through how to reconcile the Department order to give posts credit. These new features will improve transparency & efficiency on ordering Buddy Poppies and will speed up the credit awarded to posts for donations and Buddy Poppy orders. This is just for the Department QM as you are the only one who can order your Buddy Poppies. Feel free to reach out if any questions. Lynn W. Rolf III Programs Director Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States o:816.968.1116 C: 913.290.1754
