Forming Company Veteran Associations

FORWARDED MESSAGE -- From: The American War Library

Forming Company Veteran Associations

The Department of Veteran Affairs estimates that approximately 1,869 American veterans die each day. The number of Americans who enlist each day in the Armed Forces comes nowhere near this number. As a result, membership in our oldest and best known veteran organizations is rapidly declining. VFW, American Legion and AmVets posts in many cities have closed. The American veteran community is fighting a war of attrition.

To better promote military service and respect for veterans, all employed veterans are advised to establish a veterans association among your company employees, however small that number might be. Veterans should encourage their employers to support your association by soliciting federal tax relief and other company federal benefits for hiring veterans.

(Important Note: Because the majority of military, war service
and medal recipient wannabes make fraudulent boasts or claims
among their fellow employees than to their neighbors, company
veteran associations should require that all members submit a
copy of their DD-214 to their company's personnel office or to
the association membership committee.)
