The Department Commander has removed the requirement of purchasing Poppies as an All State requirement.  The requirement still stands to do a Poppy drive/distribution and report it.  
If you need Poppies contact other commanders, as we know that National is way behind on poppy production.

With sadness to report Jenny Poe, the lovely wife of Ray Poe for 71 years, passed away today.  

Ray Poes' Country western Band has probably performed at the majority of the Post in District One.   Some of these  Posts are no longer around.  Ray and Jenny belonged to Santee Post 9327, where their son (who also passed away)  was once the Commander.   Our prayers and thoughts are with Ray and family at this time of sorrow.  

Reporting can now be done by any member on VFWCA.ORG Login is your member number and last name.

The mental health push is enormous for National, and they are encouraging Departments, Districts and Posts to get involved with one of the most important challenges among our veterans - PTSD.
National VFW "A Day to Change Direction" date was Sep. 15, however Posts may host an event associated with the National level effort at any time throughout the year and report the results to Lynn Rolf at Lrolf@vfw.org. Be sure to check the link above for a wealth of information, resources, and tools for you to use.
