Below is a short portion of a message from the District 6 Commander:
"GOALS FOR THE YEAR! In an effort to promote the Veterans of Foreign Wars it is necessary that we get involved in our communities, and make our noble organization and its purpose known to the public. This is best done through working with our auxiliaries and promoting our programs such as the Voice of Democracy, Patriot’s Pen, Teacher of the Year, and Scouts of the Year. It is encouraged that each post get involved in a high school in your community – do the flag ceremony at home football or basketball games, march in their homecoming parades. Do whatever it takes to make a positive impact and visibility in the community. In the 6th District our theme for the year is: GET EXCITED & DO WHAT HAS TO BE DONE! When our fellow veterans see our involvement in the community – they will want to join us in our efforts and our membership will grow."
