Commander-in-Chief Fritz Mihelcic has laid down a challenge to all VFW Posts for the month of January 2022! The top Post in each Division with the most New and Reinstated members between January 1st and January 31st will receive a $500 stipend deposited into the Post account. Remember that a New member is someone who has never been part of the VFW before, and a Reinstated member is one who has been unpaid for two full calendar years. Your Post Quartermaster can get a list of potential reinstates by using the Find Unpaid Members option under “Reporting” in the Online Membership System! We want to see all of our Posts getting out in the community to bring in new members, and working to bring lapsed members back into the fold. Our goal is to grow our membership, and THE TIME IS NOW!!
