The VFW Adopt a Unit Program affects the lives of each and every member of the deploying National Guard, Reservist, and regular military, each of their families and every member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
“By adopting one of the deploying units we, the members of the VFW step back into the arena of camaraderie that bonded our membership together during our own conflicts in our past. By adopting our young comrade’s we send our spirit, our hopes and our fears along with them in our hope for their safe return and also allows us, the VFW members, to know that we are doing our best to see to the needs of those families that are left at home during that families’ time of separation and fear for their loved ones.” Dave Goeldner, Wisconsin VFW News Learn more
