Legacy Life membership enables VFW Life members to leave a lasting impression on our great organization.
Each level offers generous benefits reserved exclusively for Legacy Life members. Once your Legacy Life membership begins, an annual endowment in your name will be made to your Post, Department and the national organization. You will feel confident knowing your contributions to our organization are not only helping today’s veterans but the veterans of tomorrow.
You may also purchase a Memorial Legacy in the name of a deceased VFW Life member to help future generations know and remember their sacrifice and contributions.
Three prestigious levels of Legacy Life membership are available: Gold, Silver and Bronze.

The Post presented certificates of honor to two of our Korean War veterans at the Post meeting. Pictured: State Sr Vice Commander Jeff Carroll, Korean War veteran Willis Byrd, Korean War veteran Charles Kennedy, Post 2667 Commander John Skinner.
Attending veterans took turns at the podium to give short speeches about National POW/MIA recognition day. Dick Stender, a local veteran, detailed how the POW/MIA flag symbolizes the United States' resolve to never forget about its POWs and missing soldiers. VFW Commander John Skinner spoke.
On Aug. 10, 1990, Congress passed public law 101355 designating Sept. 21 as National POW/MIA Recognition Day. In addition, the POW/MIA flag is required to be flown on Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, National POW/ MIA Recognition Day and Veterans Day. The flag must be flown below the national flag and placed above any state flag.
A table was set up as a symbol for the day, each part of the setting serving a symbolic purpose - the single red rose in a vase is 'to remind us of the life of each of the missing' and the slice of lemons on the plate were a representation of the bitter fate of those captured and missing in a foreign land.
Clyde Aubrey Burnette, a veteran from World War II, was in attendance. During his service, he spent 13 months in a German POW camp.
The ceremony concluded with 'Taps' being played as the veterans gave salute to the national flag, state flag and POW/MIA flag flying over the plaza in the city park at Jackson Street and Temple Avenue.

At this month's meeting we recognized those veterans 80 and over in our midst. The two with their hands up are over 90! You guys led the way, now it's time for us to step up and take the reins of the Post. Thank-you!
It was a great day as we remembered those who paid the ultimate price for our nation.
Richard Stender once again emcee'd the program as we remembered Coweta County's WWI Honor Roll. It's 100 years since they went off to fight in the War to end all wars.
Afterwards we opened the Coweta Veterans Club to the public where they got to share lunch with local veterans. Here's a few of the people who showed up.
We offer a big thanks to everyone who donated, worked, and supported the program.
As usual, the community came out in force to help us, along with the rest of the Coweta Veterans Club community, decorate the graves of veterans. We continue to remember our veterans and their sacrifices.
