Author: Laurie Cox (The VFW lady)
My name is Laurie Cox, and I am an active member of the Ladies Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars. The mission of our organization is to assist the VFW in a multitude of programs that benefit Veterans, their families, America‘s Youth, and the communities in which we exist.
As a huge Veteran supporter, this Lady applauds all organizations who truly exist to “Support Our Troops” both past and present. I currently serve as the 2013-2014 VAVS Representative and Scholarship Chairman for my Auxiliary.
Over the years I have encountered hundreds of groups that do wonderful work fighting to preserve the quality of life, improve healthcare, and/or to protect the rights of America’s Veterans.
I started this blog because I hope to get the word out; not only about the LAVFW, but to also give a big “SHOUT OUT!” to the thousands of businesses and groups wishing or existing to assist veterans and their families.
If you know of a veteran (or the family member of a veteran) who is in need of special assistance, moral support, something fun to do, scholarship information, patriotic confirmation, legislative updates or simply a way to save money…..
My hope is that you will find a positive, plausible, or possible: solution, recommendation, or topic of conversation right here…at vfwlady.com
