if you have not purchased your tickets for the banquet your time is running out. No tickets will be sold at the Winter Conference, so contact VFW Department Headquarters now and book your tickets.
Below is the tentative agenda for the Winter Conference. Hope you can join our Voice of Democracy and Patriots Pen winners.
The year is fast coming to a close and all Department Shirt orders must be in by February 3, 2019! So, if you want a Department Shirt make sure you contact the Department Ways and Means Chairman Amy Jo Lett.
If you have Department pins out, please send money or pins to Amy Jo Lett by March 1, 2019. All pins must be accounted for and she needs to know if you have sold the pins or returning some.
Thank you to everyone that has purchased or helped with the Ways and Means Program this year. This money helps keep our Department running.
December 31, 2018 is coming soon and we still have a lot of annual members that have not paid their dues. Remember if dues are not paid by December 31, 2018, a member is no longer a member in good standing. They are no longer able to come to meetings or file for a cancer grant. Let’s get out there and collect those annual members.

WASHINGTON (October 9, 2018) — The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States is urging tens of thousands of student veterans to immediately contact the Department of Veterans Affairs at 888-GIBILL-1 (or 888-442-4551) if they are facing a financial hardship due to delayed VA housing payments.
The VA said that as many as 180,000 student veterans housing payments were delayed this month in part due to computer updates to reflect benefit changes through the Forever GI Bill. Until the problem is fixed, VA is requiring benefits processors to work overtime and weekends, while many student veterans may be forced to raid their individual savings accounts or borrow money from their families to hopefully avoid late fees, ruined credit ratings or eviction.
There will be a town hall meeting to discuss the St. Louis Veterans Home. Meeting will be held October 18, 2018, at Post 3944. Meeting will begin at 7:00 PM. Come and get answers to all you questions.
