NATIONAL VFW DAY
VFW Post 2667 and its Auxiliary invite members, family, friends and the community out to the National VFW’s 121st birthday celebration on September 29, 2020 with a birthday cake and comradeship. This will be held at the Coweta Veterans Club beginning at 5:30 pm.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars was established on September 29, 1899 by a group of veterans from the Spanish American War and the Philippine insurrection. It has since grown to be the nation’s largest group of combat veterans. They continue “to honor the dead by helping the living”. The VFW promotes patriotism, goodwill and youth scholarships. They also provide military assistance and community service program, promote youth activities and volunteer many hours in their local communities. National VFW Day is observed annually on September 29 honoring all men and women devoted to this valuable organization and those members who have served our nation.
Members of the VFW today hold a long-standing history of volunteerism in their communities. Not only have they served their country, but they continue to serve their fellow veterans, families and communities by sponsoring scholarships, and many other excellent services. VFW membership since its inception has been instrumental in the establishment of the Veterans Administration, the creation of the national cemetery system and passage of the GI Bill. Through the VFW, veterans honor veterans and serve their communities. On September 29 National VFW Day please take a moment to recognize all the VFW does in your community.
We appreciate all the sacrifices that the Veterans have made for us all. We are The Land of the Free because of the Brave. Please join us in the celebration at 5:30 pm. I do believe that it is also Taco Night so bring an appetite. The Coweta Veterans Club is located at 130 Veterans Club Road, Newnan, Georgia.
